We will soon be contacting patients to arrange flu jabs. We will contact patients in order of their risk of becoming very unwell should they contact Flu or COVID. We will begin our clinics with all patients who were shielded. Then we will be vaccinating:
Shielding patients and their live-in household /carers.
Patients aged 65 and over with a long term condition.
Patients with a long term condition and all other patients aged 65 and over.
Carers, Pregnant women, 2 and 3 year olds.
Please do not call us to book your flu jab-we will contact you
Please note that people in the 50-64-year old age group will not be vaccinated until November and December, providing there is sufficient vaccine, and no appointments will be offered for this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first. If you are 50-64 and you are in one of the other groups which is eligible for the flu vaccination, for example you have a health condition which puts you at risk from the flu, you will be invited earlier.
