Flu clinic 12th December

1st December 2020Flu vaccination, Patient information

Our Flu Vaccination Programme continues to provide vaccinations to all currently eligible patient groups. If you usually have a flu vaccination and haven’t had one please call the practice on 0207 515 5622. We would love to see you!

As well as the usual patients who are eligible, a free flu vaccine will also be available to:

  • People who are on the shielded patient list and members of their household
  • Patients aged between 50 and 64

 

We have now heard from the government that vaccine supplies will be made available for the next stage of our campaign. With this in mind we are setting up another flu clinic at the practice.

Flu clinic: Saturday 12th December

Contact us to book a slot.
We anticipate delivery will arrive in the next week or so but if there is a delay which is out of our control the clinic date may change so please bear with us.

Flu vaccination for 50-64 year olds

1st October 2020Flu vaccination, Patient information

We have been advised by the National Flu Immunisation Lead from NHS England that we are not allowed to offer vaccinations to people in the 50-64-year old age group until November and December, and then only providing there is sufficient available vaccine. No appointments will be offered nationally for this age group under the NHS until then. This is disappointing, but it has been put in place by Government to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first. However, if you are aged 50-64 and are in one of the other groups which is eligible for the flu vaccination, for example you have a health condition, including conditions such as diabetes or asthma, which puts you at greater risk from the flu, you will be invited earlier, subject to vaccine availability.​
