I am/I care for someone who is housebound – how do I arrange for the flu vaccination?

Please inform our reception if you’re housebound and would like a flu vaccine so they can document it. Arrangements will be made in due course for someone to visit and administer the vaccine.

I cannot make it to the flu clinics – can I still have the vaccine?

We would appreciate it, where possible, if you could attend one of the clinics. However we will have appointments available to book after all the clinics have finished.

I think I’m eligible for the flu clinic but I haven’t received my letter?

If you have had previous vaccinations from us or think you are now eligible but you haven’t received a letter, please contact reception who will have a Dr or Nurse check your record then get back to you.

To be eligible for a flu vaccination on the NHS you must meet one of the following:

  • Be aged 65 or over
  • Pregnant
  • Have diabetes
  • Have a long-term condition of the:
  • Lungs e.g. COPD or asthma
  • Heart
  • Brain or nervous system
  • Kidneys
  • Liver
  • Immune system
  • Spleen

 

I’m not eligible to have the vaccine under the criteria, but I would still like it – what can I do?

Most pharmacies will offer a flu vaccination service where you can have the flu jab for a small charge.

Some children will receive the vaccination at school but for those who do not, and who are eligible under the government criteria, invites will be sent when the vaccines become available.
