Flu Vaccinations for 50-64 Year Olds

As you may be aware, the government have advised that 50-64 year olds not in a recognised clinical 'at risk' group will be able to have a free flu vaccination this year. More information is available here.

If you fall into this category, please do not ring the surgery to try and book an appointment to have the vaccination. The earliest you will be offered a flu vaccination is November, providing there is sufficient vaccine. No appointments will be offered for people in this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first.

If you are aged 50 to 64 and are in a clinical ‘at risk’ group which is eligible for the flu vaccination, for example you have a health condition which puts you at risk from the flu, you will be invited earlier. 

Thank you, as always, for your patience and understanding.
