Flu Update – November

A big thank you to staff and patients alike who have, so far, helped us to deliver over 2300 vaccinations.

This is only 600 short of the total we delivered last year, up to the end of March – we still have capacity to administer more.

This not only means that these people are helping to safeguard themselves against influenza but it provides much needed income to you surgery – thank you.

Any registered patient over 65, or those under 65 with a long term condition, can have their jab for free.

Two and three year old children, and pregnant women, are also eligible.

We are still awaiting national guidance on the delivery of jabs for 50-64 year olds who do not have long standing conditions.

Currently, these are not included in the immunisation programme.

 

Thank you
