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

 Later in the year, the flu vaccine may be given to people aged 50 to 64. More information will be available later in the autumn. 

Due to Covid19 we cannot hold our usual ‘walk in’ Saturday clinic. If you are eligible for an influenza vaccination you will need to book an appointment.  Please contact the surgery and ask to be added to our list of patients who would like the flu vaccination.

When attending the surgery for a flu vaccination:

  1. Please do not arrive too early for your appointment
  2. Wear short sleeves
  3. No unnecessary items should be brought in to the surgery with you
  4. Use the toilet at home before attending the surgery
  5. Wear a face covering or mask
  6. Use hand gel before entering the building
  7. Wait outside by the front door (there will be clear signage to show where to wait)
  8. Keep 2 metres away from any other patients waitingYou may also be collected from the car park and taken to the Nurses Treatment room for your flu vaccination. Not sure if you are eligible? Look at the NHS website for full details: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/vaccinations/who-should-have-flu-vaccine/
  9. If you are eligible you may also be offered the shingles or pneumonia vaccination at the same time.
  10. During some of the flu clinics we will be administering the vaccination in the lobby area. The idea being that the patient will enter by the front door facing the steps and exit using the front door into the car park. Only one patient will be in the lobby at one time. Patients waiting outside should keep 2 metres away from each other and please bear in mind the weather conditions. That’s one of the reasons we ask that you don’t arrive too early for your appointment, the other reason is that we have limited space in the surgery car park.
