Seasonal Flu Vaccination

It’s all about flu

Flu vaccinations have now ended and will start again in September.

How to book in the future

Booking online where possible is recommended to avoid increased demand on our busy phonelines. You will be able to book using the NHS app or by using Patient Access. If you currently use neither of these then we would recommend registering for the NHS app as this is a more streamlined process.

Patient Information Leaflets – Read before you attend

How to receive a Flu vaccination while social distancing

When you attend for a Flu vaccination you must have a booked appointment. You must wear a face covering unless you have a medical reason not to. You will find the following markers outside and inside to try and ensure you stay 2 meters away from anyone from another household. If you are attending with someone else from your household you should stay close together and move as one unit. Your temperature will be checked on arrival and if raised you will not be able to have the vaccine. Those giving your vaccine will be wearing a face mask but based on recent guidance they will not be wearing gloves or an apron but will be using alcohol gel on their hands between each patient. There will be a one way system at both practices.

For some clinics you will be told a colour. Make a note of this and join the specific socially distanced queue on arrival. Only enter the building when asked to do so.
Stand on the marking with any members from your household. Only move forward when the next marking is free maintaining 2 meters distance from those in front.
Once inside the building follow the footprint stickers. Only move forward once the person in front is approaching their next stop maintaining 2 meters distance. You can stand together with members of your household.
