  • Have a learning disability
  • Are the main carer for someone who is at risk of Covid-19, or whose welfare may be at risk if you fall ill
  • Over 50

This year again we will be hosting socially-distanced Flu Clinics at the Practice. Please contact the practice flu booking line 01446 508159 between 10.00am - 1.30pm (Mon-Fri) , or complete an online form through our website, or the MySurgeryApp.

In order to maintain social distancing, we have spaced our appointments out to prevent a build up of patients in the queue. We therefore ask all patients to turn up as close to their appointment time as possible.

Please be aware that these will be socially-distanced clinics and we request all patients please adhere to the following:

  • Wear a mask prior to entering the surgery unless you are exempt
  • Arrive promptly for your appointment, but not to early
  • Remove your coat/jumper whilst waiting to go into your flu jab and store these in a carrier bag
  • Attend on your own to reduce footfall in the clinical areas, except for those who are frail or disabled and may need a carer or family member to accompany them, or if you are attending as a couple/family
  • Be prepared to confirm your personal details as well as any allergies/previous reactions you may have had to the flu or other vaccine
  • Use hand sanitiser facilities provided upon entry to the surgery
  • Follow the one way direction arrows within the surgery and observe the 2 metre social distancing

Important notice

Please also be aware that practices unfortunately do not receive the flu vaccines at the same time. This means you may get your flu vaccine at a different time to other people in your area. It is useful to note that the ‘over 65’s’ vaccine is different to the ‘at risk’ vaccine for under 65’s, and they are delivered separately. This has an impact on when different age groups can get the vaccine.
