Flu Vaccinations

Flu Clinic dates

Flu clinics for patients aged over 65 -  we have managed to secure 50 more vaccines so have a few slots left for October 24th – please phone reception to book in.

We have had an unprecedented demand for vaccinations and are trying to source more vaccine supply but at this stage there is none available for over 65s. We hope to have more vaccines via central government supply in late October/ early November and we will update this website when we have any further information.

Flu clinics for patients in at risk groups aged 18- 64.  Our next clinic on 24th October is full but we are expecting more vaccine supply in late October and early November, once this supply has been received we will open up clinics which are likely to be in the day time.  We will update this website once we have further supply and clinic dates.

We now have child flu vaccines in stock for 2 and 3 year olds (as of 31st August 2020) ONLY and those in an “At Risk” group and are holding flu clinics in October and November with booking available on line or via reception.

Please note that we have limited vaccine supply and can only vaccinate the at risk groups as defined by the NHS. Click here for a full list of all those eligible. Some pharmacies are offering flu vaccinations.

Flu clinic instructions

We have redesigned our flu clinics this year to minimise any risks from coronavirus.  We have a strict one way system in place and social distancing in the queue.  Our aim is for you to spend the minimum amount of time necessary in the practice.

Please follow these instructions for your safety and that of our staff:

  • Attend on your own unless you need help to access the practice.
  • Arrive on time for your appointment - do not come early or late.  We have allocated a strict number of patients per period to ensure that people are queueing for the minimum of time and social distancing is maintained.
  • Please wear a face covering. If you are exempt from wearing a mask, please be prepared to provide evidence of this.
  • Please follow the instructions for queuing. The queue will be controlled to ensure social distancing. If you are in a wheelchair or have very limited mobility, please make yourself known to the queue marshal.
  • Wear clothing which makes it easy to expose your upper arm.
  • Please heed the instructions of the staff who are supervising the patient flow – they are there for your safety.

Do not attend the flu clinic if you or any members of your household have symptoms of coronavirus, or if you have been told to isolate.

Free flu vaccinations may also be available towards the end of the year to people aged between 50-64. However, it is important to stress that this will be subject to vaccine supply and priority will be given to those in at risk groups first.

Why am I being asked to wait to have my flu vaccine?
