The full NHS eligibility criteria for this year's flu campaign can be found here. If you are a carer, or live with or have regular contact with someone who has a weak immune system or a long-term condition, please read on here.
Childrens Flu Nasal Spray
Unfortunately, we are still waiting to hear when the children’s nasal flu vaccine will be delivered to us. We have been told this is likely to be October. This is this same situation for all GP surgeries
Housebound and can’t get to the surgery to get your flu jab?
Not a problem, just give us a ring at the surgery on 01626 357080. Those patients who are already on the district nurses caseload as a housebound patient, they will receive their vaccine from the district nursing team in their own home. Any patients who are currently housebound but not on the district nurses caseload, we shall work to identify these patients and ensure they will receive a visit also from the district nurses to have their vaccines. Patients or carers are welcome to call and book an appointment for someone who is genuinely housebound who we may not be aware of, e.g they may have just come out of hospital and are temporarily unable to leave their home. Please note, housebound does not mean that someone does not have transport or access to transport. A housebound patient is someone who is bed or chair bound, either temporarily, or permanently.
Why have your vaccination at YOUR GP Surgery?
- We offer a setting where we can check your medical records and make sure you get the most suitable vaccine
- We can offer protection for those who may be forgetful by reducing the risk of duplication in vaccines being administered
- We offer a fast, efficient and friendly flu clinic service with your local surgery team (and we really enjoy our drop in flu clinic sessions, it gives us a nice break from our ‘normal’ work)
- We can ensure continuity of care for our patients and carers (we know you already)
