Flu clinics are now on the system, if you are eligible book online if you can, if you need to telephone to make your appointment you should avoid 8-9am and 12-2pm.
The clinics will be run differently this year, please note:
- There will be separate clinics for over 65’s, under 65’s who are in an at risk group and children who are eligible to be vaccinated at the surgery
- You should attend alone wherever possible
- DO NOT ATTEND IF YOU ARE UNWELL OR HAVE COVID SYMPTOMS
- You should bring a face covering with you to your appointment
- There will be no seating available, and you will remain standing for your vaccination – let us know if you will find this difficult
- Wear loose clothing and have your arm exposed when you enter the nurses room
- Wash hands regularly / use hand sanitiser
- The flu clinics will be strictly for flu vaccines only, if you are due for anything else you will need to make an appointment in a normal clinic where your flu vaccine will be given at the same time, try to attend the surgery as little as possible
- We will have flu clinics at all three sites at a variety of times Monday to Friday, remember to stay 2 metres apart from other patients, and if the weather is inclement, bring an umbrella as it is likely there will be queues.
- Ensure you know which site your appointment has been booked at, if it is at St Peters Centre, it will be in the Health Education Suite if your appointment is for flu vaccination only, not in the normal practice premises. The Health Education Suite is on the 1st Floor in the St Peters Centre
- There is a suggestion that all those aged 50 and over will be vaccinated – at the moment we are not aware of whether this will occur, or how, so if you are aged 50-64 and not in an at risk group, do not contact us at this stage
