FLU VACCINATIONS

This year we are pre-booking all our flu vaccinations so that we can maintain social distancing in the surgery.

Please call 01793 536541 to book your appointment.

We have clinics available so far, on:

  • Tuesday 15th September – children aged 2-3 (pre-school)
  • Tuesday 22nd September – Over 65s only (who are less mobile or need accompanying)
  • Saturday 19th September – Over 65s and Under 65’s who are eligible ie with diabetes, COPD, Asthma. You must be mobile and over 18 to attend the Saturday sessions as we need patients to able to move through the surgery quickly.

More clinics will be added regularly throughout the next few months but we would advise patients to get their flu vaccination early as there is likely to be a bigger uptake than normal and when the vaccines have gone we may not be able to get any more.

Our Saturday Clinic will involve pre-booked appointments only.  We will have up to 6 patients being vaccinated at one time.  You will need to arrive on time and wait outside the surgery until you are called for your time slot.  Please bring an umbrella if it is raining as you will not be allowed into the waiting room until your allotted time slot.

We will make sure that you are managed carefully through the surgery to ensure you can maintain social distancing.

All vaccinations will take place at the entrance to a clinical room and you will need to be prepared to get your arm ready (ie out of clothing) prior to the appointment, so please wear something that is easy to remove but covers your underwear ie a t-shirt.

All six patients being vaccinated will move through the building together and be guided out of a separate exit once all the vaccinations are complete for the group.

Unfortunately we will not be able to deal with queries and other issues at these appointments.

Thank you for your understanding.
