Flu Clinics
posted 19 September 2014 10:58

Our clinics start in October; we offer a variety of days and times, the first in on Saturday 11th October.

Flu strains change and therefore the vaccine varies from year to year.
We advise the following amongst our patients to take advantage of the annual campaign to protect themselves from flu this winter; those are patients:

  • over 65 years
  • who are pregnant
  • with chronic (long term) respiratory disease such as severe asthma or COPD
  • with coronary heart disease, heart failure, diabetes, liver or kidney disease, stroke, TIA and chronic neurological disease
  • who have a weakened immune system due to treatments that suppress the immune system eg chemotherapy & conditions such as HIV
  • who are carers or frontline health or social care workers
  • children aged over 6 months with a long term condition

Our Friends Group are planning to serve coffee & bacon rolls at the surgery during our Saturday clinic to raise funds for equipment to benefit our patients. Previous amounts raised have bought a fully equipped doctors bag for home visits.

This year it is national policy to offer annual influenza vaccination in the form of a nasal vaccine to children aged between 2 and 4 years on 1st September. All children over 4 in at risk category will be given nasal vaccine unless contraindicated.

If you are in any of the above groups please phone the surgery on 0844 387 9888 or 01326 558714 to book your appointment.
