Influenza Vaccination Appointments for patients aged 50-64
Posted on 11 Dec 2020
Influenza vaccination appointments for patients aged 50-64 who do not already fall into an "at risk" group now available on Tuesday 15th, Thursday 17th and Tuesday 22nd December.
Where possible please book your appointment using SystmOnline. If you do not have online access, please call our designated 50-64 'Flu booking telephone line 01423 813619 between 9am and 3pm, Monday to Friday. This line is likely to be busy so thank you for your patience. We realise the clinics are short notice but are committed to vaccinating as many patients as possible before Christmas.
When attending for your vaccine, please wear a face covering and DO NOT attend if you have Coronavirus symptoms or have been advised to self-isolate for any other reason.
There will be huge pressure on the car park, so please walk if you can.
The vaccine that has been made available is Flublok. This vaccine is being used "off-label". This means it does not have UK marketing authorisation but has been authorised for temporary supply in the UK by the MHRA and is therefore being offered in accordance with national guidance. It has been licensed and used in the US since 2013. Click here for more information.
