Flu Vaccination

Due to the impact of Covid-19 our approach to providing flu vaccinations this year is different to usual.

Patients need to pre-book an appointment.  The clinics are being run from the back of the building and patients are asked to wear short sleeved tops, a mask and not attend more than 5 minutes before their appointment time.

As of 15th September we are vaccinating those over 65 and those in the 2-4 year old cohort and at risk children.  Our vaccine for those under 65 in at risk groups does not arrive until October.

If you are eligible for the vaccine you can book an appointment with us or go to a local pharmacy – their vaccine availability can be seen below

 

 

General Flu Information

Seasonal flu is a highly infectious illness caused by a flu virus.

The virus infects your lungs and upper airways, causing a sudden high temperature and general aches and pains.

You could also lose your appetite, feel nauseous and have a dry cough. Symptoms can last for up to a week.

We offer ‘at risk’ groups the flu vaccine at a certain time each year to protect you against the flu virus.

You may be invited for a flu jab if you are:

  • over 65 years of age
  • pregnant

or have:

  • a serious heart or chest complaint, including asthma
  • serious kidney disease
  • diabetes
  • lowered immunity due to disease or treatment such as steroid medication or cancer treatment
  • if you have ever had a stroke
  • If you have any queries please contact the surgery.
