2014 FLU VACCINATION CAMPAIGN
We will once again be holding our annual Flu Vaccination clinics for all our patients aged 65 and over and those in a recognised 'at risk' group. From 1st September, eligible patients will receive either a text message or a letter inviting them to have the flu vaccine and to make an appointment. These clinics will be held during on the first three Saturday mornings in October ie 4th, 11th and 18th October and patients are asked to contact our reception team on 01202 525252 to arrange this appointment. However, we would appreciate if patients could call after our busy morning period to arrange this from 9.30 am onwards.
Patients aged 65 and over are also eligible for a free vaccination against pneumonia. This is a once in a life time vaccine and if you would like to have this please inform the nurse during your flu appointment who will check your records to ensure that you haven't had it already.
A vaccination against Shingles is also being offered to patients who are aged 70, 78 and 79 on the 1st September 2014. Letters will be sent to eligible patients inviting them to have the shingles vaccine during the flu clinics.
If you have any queries about the vaccines or our flu campaign please do not hesitate to contact the surgery.
