Flu Clinics 2019 -
Saturday clinics are finished for now. Flu appointments are available on weekday lunchtimes but spaces fill up fast. You can now book online (24/7) as well as by telephone when we are open.
All Under 65's At Risk - Notifications to eligible patients have been sent out. If you haven't received an invitation and you think you are eligible, please call reception who will check your mobile number against the system and check eligibility.
NASAL FLU for Ages 2-3 and At Risk Children
Eligible patients aged 2-3 are offered the Nasal flu which is a spray not an injection. We are not able to offer this to Primary school children in Yrs R-6. Their school will provide this to them via the School nursing team and arrange catch-up clinics.
We also invite children at risk due to other medical conditions aged 0-18. If the nasal flu spray is unsuitable due to egg allergy or immunosuppresion there is an injectable alternative available from the practice.
We are only allowed very limited stocks so we are inviting patients in order of priority starting with children in an at risk group followed by children aged 2, then age 3. We are restricted to small weekly consignments so we would not able to offer a separate Saturday walk-in clinic for this. Please wait for an invitation before booking in.
Shingles vaccination is available all year round to eligible patients aged between 70 and 79, so please ask at reception if you would like this.
All our patients over 65, all ages who have a Chronic Disease e.g. asthma, diabetes, COPD, liver and kidney diseases, stroke, immunosuppressed, heart disease, BMI in the morbidly obese range, all pregnant women and all registered carers should arrange to attend for their seasonal protection against Influenza.
We will also offer pneumococcal vaccination to eligible patients at the same time.
We may offer Pneumococcal and Shingles vaccination during the flu clinics but please be aware of time constraints. Thank you.
