Seasonal Flu Vaccinations

 

BACK TO MAIN INDEX

We are now booking appointments for our seasonal flu clinics.  If you are eligible for a flu jab, please contact the surgery on 01984 632701 after 11am to book your vaccination.

All patients over the age of 65 or those who will reach 65 before 31 March 2022, are eligible for a flu jab.  Our next clinic for patients in this group will take place on Saturday 30 October.

Patients in a clinical 'at risk' group are also encouraged to have a vaccine.  Our next clinic for under 65s will be held on Saturday 23 October.

Due to difficulties in the national supply of the flu vaccine this year, we are having to stagger our clinics and our booking arrangements.  We will release more clinic dates in due course as soon as we have further confirmed delivery schedules.

Flu and COVID Vaccinations

The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) has confirmed that there does not need to be a period of delay between patients receiving their flu and COVID vaccinations.  Certain vaccinations such as shingles will require a gap of at least 7 days.
