Flu Vaccinations 2020 / 2021

Flu Vaccinations for Over 65yrs

Appointments are now available to book. We will be undertaking pre-booked only clinic’s on Saturday 05th and Saturday 12th September. Appointments can be booked online or by contacting the surgery (after 10am when the lines are not as busy). If you are attending an appointment for an alternative clinical reason, please advise the member of staff that you also require your vaccination. We are not currently offering mid week flu clinics.

Saturday Walk in Clinics – This will be a walk through only.  There will be no seating available and patients will follow a one way system through the building, adhering to 2m social distances from additional patients.              We request that you do not arrive more than 10minutes before your appointment, that you ensure you are wearing your own face covering and wear a short sleeved top to allow clinician’s ease of accessibility to your upper arm.

Flu Vaccinations for Under 65yrs with a clinical eligibility

We are expecting our Flu Vaccinations week commencing 28th September.

We are not yet booking appointments.

Eligibility – those aged six months to under 65 years in clinical risk groups / pregnant women / those in long-stay residential care homes / carers.  If you are unsure if you meet any of these criteria, please do not hesitate to speak to a member of staff for further information.

Flu Vaccinations for patients aged 50-64yrs

As per North Cumbria CCG guidance, please note that people in the 50-64-year old age group will not be vaccinated until November and December, providing there is sufficient vaccine, and no appointments will be offered for this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first.  If you are 50-64 and you are in one of the other groups 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.

Childrens Nasal Flu

Children aged 2 & 3yrs are eligible for the Nasal Flu to be administered at the Practice.  We will advise when we are aware of available stock.

Any queries, please do not hesitate to contact the Practice directly.
