Flu Vaccination Clinics 2015/2016

It's that time of year when we ask people to come along to the surgery for a flu jab.  The seasonal flu can be a serious illness for certain people and we again are running two Saturday Clinics to ensure that you are covered. 

This year we are vaccinating the following groups of people:

  • Over 65 years of age (born before 1st April 1951)
  • Under 65 years who fall into one of the "at risk" categories
  • Preschool children (born between 02/07/2011 & 01/09/2013)
  • All pregnant women
  • All carers
  • Those attending a special school / Autism / Learning Disability
  • Those in long stay residential homes

If you fall into any of the above categories you will  receive a letter on or after 2nd October 2015 in the post inviting you to come for your vaccination.  We would encourage patients to try to attend on these dates although if you need to attend the Health Centre for another appointment we will try were possible to facilitate you to have your jab carried out.

We would kindly ask patients NOT to attend the treatment room to ONLY have your vaccination carried out during the week where possible.

If the District Nurse gave your injection last year your name will automatically be added to thier list for this year and therefore you WILL NOT receive a letter.  You can expect a visit from the nurse over the next few months.

Should you fall into one of the above categories and have not received a letter please telephone our reception were one of the team can advise you.
