Flu Clinics 2020 - We are now running lunchtime flu clinics between 1pm-1.30pm. Please call or book online. You must be eligible.
We are not able to do the 50-64 group who don't have an 'At-risk' condition yet. We will invite you when we are able to start this.
Refer to our News page for more information about how the Flu campaign is running across the Fleet Practices this year.
All our patients over 65, all ages who have a Chronic Disease e.g. asthma, diabetes, COPD, liver and kidney diseases, stroke, immunosuppressed, heart disease, BMI in the morbidly obese range, all pregnant women and all registered carers should arrange to attend for their seasonal protection against Influenza.
Please note that, if you are aged between 50 and 64 and not in a clinical at risk group, the earliest you will be offered a flu vaccination is November, providing there is sufficient vaccine. No appointments will be offered for people in this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first. If you are aged 50 to 64 and are in a clinical ‘at risk’ group which is eligible for the flu vaccination, for example you have a health condition which puts you at risk from the flu, you will be invited earlier.
We will also offer Pneumococcal vaccination to eligible patients (those at most risk, and all over 65's) at the same time as their flu. This is a one-off vaccination.
We may offer Pneumococcal and Shingles vaccination during the flu clinics but please be aware of time constraints. Thank you.
Shingles vaccination is available all year round to eligible patients aged between 70 and 79, so please ask at reception if you would like this.
