Our 2020 flu clinics have now finished.
If you are eligible and have still not received your flu vaccination, please contact the surgery on 01244 680169, and providing we still have available stock we will be able to book your appointment with a nurse during usual surgery hours.
Who's Eligible for a flu vaccination (2020)?
You should have the flu vaccine if you:
- are 50 years old or over
- are pregnant
- have certain medical conditions
- are living in a long-stay residential care home or another long-stay care facility
- receive a carer's allowance, or you're the main carer for an elderly or disabled person whose welfare may be at risk if you fall ill
- live with someone who's at high risk of coronavirus (on the NHS shielded patient list) or you expect to be with them on most days over winter
Frontline health and social care workers are also eligible to receive the flu vaccine. It's your employer's responsibility to arrange and pay for this vaccine.
You may also be able to have the flu vaccine at the GP surgery or a local pharmacy offering the service if you're a frontline health or social care worker employed by a:
- registered residential care or nursing home
- registered homecare organisation
Remember if you are not eligible for a free NHS flu vaccination, you can enquire about getting a vaccination from your local pharmacies for a small fee.
