Flu Vaccine 2020

The practice has now received its first delivery of flu vaccines.  These vaccines were ordered in 2019 and the quantity ordered was in line with the normal number of vaccines we use each season.  The practice has to order and purchase these vaccines itself, they are not supplied by the NHS, so for this reason we never order more than we need.  Due to the pandemic we do expect there to be an increase in demand for the vaccine and as the season progresses we will monitor stock carefully and we will try to secure additional supplies if needed.  We ask that patients are patient with us should this happen, we will do everything in our power to provide everyone who qualifies, and wants one, with a vaccine.

As in other years the vaccine is available free of charge from the practice to –

  • Anyone aged 65 or over
  • Anyone who is pregnant
  • Anyone who suffers from a long term, serious health condition as listed on the NHS website here
  • Anyone who works in health and social care
  • Carers
  • If you live with someone who is at high risk from coronavirus (they are on the NHS shielding list)

Due to the practice having to work in a Covid secure manner the vaccines will be delivered to eligible patients via prebooked clinics.  These will be running at weekends and on some evenings.

The practice has already started contacting eligible patients to offer them an appointment.  You can of course call us for an appointment rather than wait for us to contact you.

We are aware that the government has said that the vaccine will be offered to those aged 50-64 but patients in this age group should be aware that this will not be until November/December, once the most clinically at risk patients have had their vaccinations.  We will update patients as soon as we can.
