Annual Influenza Programme 2020/2021
Posted on 9 Sep 2020
Our first stock of vaccine will be arriving with us in mid-September. Due to COVID-19 we will be running fixed vaccination clinics which will be slower due to the virus, social distancing and cleaning. This first stock delivery will be for those aged 65 and over and those aged 9-64 years old in a confirmed at risk category for long term, chronic health issues.
If you are within the above cohort of patients ONLY, you can now book your appointment for flu.
If you are vulnerable, have shielded and are concerned about attending, please speak to our reception team who can advise on an appropriate alternative or advise this in your email as we have arranged a Shielding Flu Vaccine Clinic.
NEW COHORT: Aged 50-64 none at risk. The earliest you will be offered a flu vaccination is November and this is subject to sufficient vaccine supplies. This is Government guidelines and is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first. The Government are working with manufacturers to increase available supplies.
