Flu Clinics 2018 - Please telephone the Surgery to book your Flu Injection

Please support your local surgery and book your vaccination here at the Surgery

 

Influenza and winter infection may not be your main concern at this time of year or in this incredible weather; but we are already planning our campaign for flu prevention for the forthcoming winter season as we are so aware that prevention is better than cure.

 

If you are in one of the eligible risk categories (listed below), we would highly recommend that you book in for your immunisation with us. We can then document straight away in your medical records that you are protected.

 

All our clinics are staffed by the practice team you already know and trust: our nurses and doctors who may have been treating you for ongoing health conditions will be there to provide you with flu immunisation and relevant advice.

 

 

You are eligible to receive a free flu jab if you: 

 

  • are 65 years of age or over   
  • are pregnant 
  • have certain medical conditions such as:
  • are living in a long-stay residential care home or other long-stay care facility 
  • receive a carer's allowance, or you are the main carer for an elderly or disabled person whose welfare may be at risk if you fall ill  
  • The flu vaccine is free on the NHS for:
  • children over the age of 6 months with a long-term health condition
  • children aged 2 and 3 on 31 August 2017 – that is, born between 1 September 2013 and 31 August 2015
  • children in reception class and school years 1, 2,  3 and 4
  • Children aged between 6 months and 2 years of age who are eligible for the flu vaccine should have the flu jab.
  • Children eligible for the flu vaccine aged between 2 and 17 will usually have the flu vaccine nasal spray

Front-line health and social care workers are also eligible to receive the flu vaccine. It is your employer's responsibility to arrange and pay for this vaccine.
