Seasonal Flu Vaccination Clinics
The seasonal flu vaccination campaign commences in earnest during September.
We plan to vaccinate as many of those eligible as possible as soon as possible.
We will open up the different clinics for booking from time to time so as not to overload staff or tie up the telephones line too much. We will send out online booking links to those eligible patients for whom we have mobile telephone number details and the appointments can then be booked directly without patients having to call the surgery on the landlines.
There are different vaccines for different age groups so our clinics are planned around these. For safety reasons we will not administer different vaccines in the same clinics.
On the last 2 weekends where our staff have given up their time to run these FLU clinics, over 50 people have failed to attend their appointment.
It is extremely frustrating therefore when patients do not turn up for appointments they have booked and others are still waiting for appointments. If you book an appointment please be courteous to our staff and your fellow patients and turn up, or at least cancel in good time - it is appreciated, thank you.
