Flu Vaccinations and Covid Booster

Dear Patients,

We are currently in the process of identifying all patients eligible for a free flu vaccination. We have also been asked to be part of and deliver, the covid vaccination boosters. NHSE are expecting a rise in flu cases this year due to the lessening of restrictions and therefore there is more household mixing. PLEASE could we ask that you do not ring us for a Flu/Covid booster yet.

Following the success of last year РWe are going to use the Royal British Legion, Mickleover again for the flu and possibly Рif they (NHS England) allow,  the Covid booster for our patients that are eligible. Otherwise it may mean two visits, one for Flu and one for Covid booster at a location to be determined.

What do we need you to do:

We need you to ensure we have your correct mobile number on your record because the survey for Flu & Covid will come through this process in order to book the appointments.

You can check your mobile number is correct through system one registration if you are already connected, or through the NHS App, or by sending in contact details through the website here.

If we do not have correct your mobile number, we will not be able to book your flu etc remotely.

Once again, if we could ask you to please do not call us to book an appointment, we will text you. If you are not a mobile user, don’t worry we will call you, again if you can help by updating your details with a mobile number through our website, it will help enormously.

Your Team at Mickleover Medical Centre
