Flu Season 2002-21
Flu Season is upon us and all those eligible for a flu vaccination should have received a letter asking them to book by now.
If you belief that you are eligible for a flu jab and haven't received a letter then contact us (maybe this is because you are a carer or you live with someone who is at high risk of getting Coronavirus).
Our first clinic is Saturday 3rd October and is for Over 65s only.
We are following this with clinics on Saturday 10th, 17th October and 14th November and some Tuesday or Wednesday evenings throughout October. These clinics are open to Over 65s and those in an at risk category.
Further clinics will be added as and when needed.
Whilst we’ve received information that all 50-64 year olds may be eligible for a free flu vaccination as part of plans to protect more people against seasonal flu, these free vaccinations will be subject to delivery later in the year.
This allows us to focus on those who are in an at risk group, such as pregnant women and people with long term health conditions. They will be given priority and offered the vaccine first; if you are in this category you will be contacted.
If you are aged 50-64 and not in one of the at risk categories you will be made aware in the coming months if you will be able to attend for vaccination. If the programme is extended, this is likely to be November or December.
Of course if you wish to access a vaccine prior to this date you can pay to have this at your local pharmacy as in previous years, otherwise please wait for more information.
We now have a Facebook page.
