Flu Season 2018/19
Flu season is coming around again fast.
We will be offering flu vaccines to those over 65 and those in clinical risk categories under 65 from late September through to November.
We will be doing these as booked clinics this year as there has been a change by Public Health in the vaccines used and these are being delivered in three amounts.
We will be texting patients with invitations based on the delivery dates and quantities.
If you have not received a text message inviting you then you can check at reception from mid-September to see which group you will be in.
Please support your GP practice and have your Flu vaccination with us.
There will be enough vaccines available at the practice for all eligible patients, but some patients (who are over 65 but with a lower clinical risk) will not be offered their vaccine until November because of the delivery times.
The main flu peak is not normally until December through to the New Year so your vaccination should be in plenty of time.
The new vaccine introduced by Public Health is more effective and therefore it is better to wait for the more effective vaccine rather than give you a less effective vaccine earlier. Because it is the first year it is being used widely in the UK they are not able to provide all the necessary vaccines by early October so the deliveries to all surgeries are being staggered.
Please bear with us and do ask reception if you have not had a text message and they will be able to let you know when you can book in.
