Flu Vaccination Clinics
Posted on 29 Sep 2020
The flu vaccination is recommended yearly for those most at risk from flu and due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, it is now more important than ever to attend for this vaccine.
If you are entitled to a flu vaccination, please phone 02890164619 to book an appointment for your flu vaccination this year as walk-ins will not be allowed. This is a designated phone number to be used for booking flu appointments only between the hours of 2pm and 5pm.
We will be operating a completely different flu clinic this year to facilitate social distancing. Here is what to expect:
§ You must not attend your appointment if you have any Covid symptoms or have been informed by Track and Trace that you have been a contact with a positive case
§ You must wear a mask or face covering – these will not be supplied by the practice so please ensure you bring your own
§ You must arrive on time for your appointment – late attenders will not be seen
§ We will have marshals who will escort you to a nominated area where your vaccination will be given
§ There will be five other patients in each nominated area per appointment
§ Please wear suitable clothing (preferably a short sleeved top)
§ You must attend alone for your appointment as we are limited to the number of people we can let into the surgery at one time (unless you need assistance)
As you can appreciate, our staff and clinicians are working in very challenging and changing times and will be working hard to deliver the most comprehensive flu vaccination programme in the UK’s history. We ask for your patience and understanding during the coming winter months.
