FLU VACCINATIONS 20/21

Posted on September 9th, 2020

With the governments announcement that all over 50-64 years old  will be offered a routine seasonal flu vaccination this years campaign will inevitably be more challenging than usual. We have been advised by NHS England to prioritise our higher risk patient first and only vaccinate well patients once we have completed these, and subject to availability. This is unlikely to be before December.

 

We  had already begun planning how we might deliver our regular vaccinations in a socially distanced world, which was causing issues with how many vaccinations we can give in a single clinic.

 

Like all GP practices we ordered our seasonal flu vaccinations many months ago, these will arrive in batches over a six to eight week period starting mid September for those aged 65+ initially.

 

Please keep an eye on the website as we will post updates as the time draws nearer
