2020 FLU VACCINATION ARRANGEMENTS

for people aged 65 and over or in an At Risk Group*

 People aged 65 and over or in an At Risk Group* can now book their flu jab for:

  • Saturday 12 September
  • Saturday 19 September

(there will be other opportunities for those who cannot make either of these dates).

Please note - there will be separate arrangements for under 18s in the At Risk Groups 

For people aged 50-64 who are not in any of the at risk groups, NHS England advises that vaccination will be from December at the earliest, provided sufficient vaccine is available nationally. This is to ensure that those most at risk are vaccinated first.    

Due to the Coronavirus situation, clinic arrangements are different this year.   Please read the following instructions carefully:

  • If possible, please walk to the surgery
  • Access to the health centre will only be from the rear car park. There will be plenty of marshals to guide you
  • Please make a note of whether your appointment is for the BLUE DOOR or the   RED DOOR as this indicates which entrance you require
  • You must attend at your appointment time. You may be turned away if you arrive too early or late
  • If you drive here, please write your appointment time clearly on a piece of paper and display this in your windscreen for when you arrive at the health centre
  • Please wear something that makes it easy for you to expose your upper arm
  • Face masks/coverings MUST be worn
