By now many of you will have heard the news that anyone over the age of 50 will be offered a free flu vaccination.
We currently run a flu vaccination programme for our patients in the groups of over 65’s and those under 65 ‘at risk’, plus children under school age and not in a school programme.
At this time, Public Health England, NHS and the other organisations involved in the planning of who will immunise the patients and secure the vaccines needed for the additional cohort of the over 50’s and under 65 has not yet been decided. We are unable to give you any further information until we are furnished with the details. Rest assured that as soon as we get the detail, we will update you on the website.
Those of you eligible in the usual yearly programme will be contacted sometime in mid-August to book your vaccination with us here in the Practice. There is no need to get in touch beforehand to book in as we will remind everyone eligible by text or letter when the vaccine delivery dates are confirmed.
