Flu Vaccines

You will be aware from coverage in the media that there are delays in the delivery of  flu vaccines and unfortunately this has affected us this year.

We have been told that we are likely to receive the first batch of our vaccines during early October and have therefore put in place the following arrangements:

Patients aged 65 & over (born before 31/3/1957) – we have a number of appointments available during the afternoon of Saturday 9 October. These can be booked by completing the Flu Vaccination Appointment Request form on the Consulting Room page of our website or by calling 01603 765550.

Patients aged 18 to 64 (born after 1/4/1957) – Eligible patients are able to make an appointment and should call reception on 01603 765550 to make the necessary arrangements.

Once we have further information on deliveries an update will be posted on our website. We are hoping to hold further clinics on Saturday 23 October together with other dates and invitations will be sent shortly.

We have been assured that the delay in our vaccines is due a problem with the deliveries rather than with the manufacture of the vaccines..
