Flu Clinics 2020 -We start our Saturday clinics in September. We will invite you or contact you to book in as soon as the vaccines are available.
Saturday clinic dates - next date is 19th September - 8.30-10.30. Over 65s and At risk under 65's can book in.
We have only limited stock of 'At risk under 65' vaccines arriving this month, and therefore limited appointment spaces. More will be coming later in October, so please do not worry, as it is still very early in the season.
Please see our joint Fleet PCN letter on the News page link.
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.
