We have just received our flu vaccine stock for the new 50-64 year old cohort so will be sending out appointments imminently. This is the group of patients in this age range who have no medical eligibility for the NHS flu jab normally. Unfortunately due to COVID and limited stock we are unable to run the usual first come, first served system and it will be by appointment only – you will receive a letter. If you want the flu jab, please do all you can to use the appointment offered as we are likely going to be busy with the COVID vaccine program very soon and so will not be able to offer flu jab appointment flexibility. If you do not want the jab please let us know so that we can offer the appointment to someone else.
If you think that you are eligible for the flu jab for medical reasons or are over 65, but have not yet had the jab and would like it, please now contact the surgery. There will inevitably be patients missed by the computer search and we are really sorry if you have not received a flu jab appointment when you should have. Contact the practice and we will get you booked in.
