DATES FOR UNDER 65'S TO FOLLOW SHORTLY

If you are attending an appointment at the surgery for another matter please ask about having the flu vaccination while you are there.  If the Doctor, Nurse or Healthcare Assistant has time within your appointment they will endeavour to save you another journey and give it to you then.

 

 

PLEASE REMEMBER TO ALWAYS WEAR A FACE MASK WHEN ATTENDING THE SURGERY

 

FLU Vaccines have started to arrive at the practice and the first clinics have taken place. These have been specifically for those patients who are aged over 65 who have been shielding.

 

The next wave will be remaining 65 plus patients.

The vaccine for the under 65's will be arriving very soon and we will then arrange clinics for the shielding then non shielding patients within that group.

We will also be organising dates for the under 18's for the nasal immunisation

These clinics are not going to be the social gatherings they

have been in the past and we ask everyone attending to be mindful of the strict Covid-19 guidelines we will have in place on these days

 

We will be contacting  patients who are eligible for a FLU Vaccine by telephone or text message to make an appointment for the vaccination. (The eligibility criteria is on our website – just clinic on the FLU VACCINATION button on the home page.)

 

If you or a member of your household has any of the three possible Covid-19 symptoms, or have had contact with someone suspected or confirmed of have Covid-19 please do not attend!

 

·         High temperature or fever

·         NEW, continuous cough

·         A loss or alteration to taste or smell

 

We are expecting a higher than usual demand for Flu Vaccinations this year and together with the staggered delivery of vaccines, there could be some delays in getting an appointment. In order for Cambridgeshire to meet this year’s Flu targets, an additional 110,000 people will need vaccinating, so we appreciate your patience and understanding as we all work through this huge task. The new age group of currently well, not at risk, 50 – 64 year olds will only be vaccinated subject to availability and not before November. More information will be available on our website nearer the time.

 

If you want information about the use of SMS messaging for health information and appointment reminder also information about ONLINE SERVICES for ordering repeat medication, health questionnaires and much more or information about Systmonline or the NHS app visit the ONLINE SERVICES section of our website.

 

 

Text messages and phone calls are being made to all patients for whom we have details recorded to advise them of the clinic details. Please could you let us know if you have changed your mobile numbers and or/email addresses so we can update our records.

If you are eligible but do not wish to have your flu vaccination this year please let the surgery know as soon as possible so we can record this on your medical records. ONCE IT IS RECORDED WE WILL NOT NEED TO KEEP TRYING TO CONTACT YOU.  THIS WILL HELP SAVE US TIME.

Let’s keep as healthy as we can this winter and not let flu get us if we can avoid it!
