Please come to Tinkers Lane for your flu vaccination in 2018
We offer this vaccination to:
Patients aged 65 or over or those under 65 with any of the following problems:
- Asthma or another chronic chest complaint
- Heart problems
- Kidney disease
- Liver Disease
- Neurological Disease
- A pregnant woman
- A carer
- If you suffer from a serious illness and have a reduced ability to fight infection
We will NOT be sending out letters to all patients to help minimise waste and impact on our environment; it also helps to reduce administration at the practice. You may receive a personalised text message on your mobile promoting the service if you’ve given us permission to do so; just follow the instructions given in your message.
If you contact details have changed in the last year please update us so that you can take advantage of this service.
As you can appreciate, in a practice our size, we have thousands of patients to vaccinate. The most practical and effective way to do this is to hold clinics at the surgery where we can have multiple nurses working.
The dates for the first flu clinics are :
Monday 17th September for patients aged 75 or over
Saturday 22nd September Patients Under 65
Wednesday 26th September - all adults!
We plan to invite children in around October half term week and we will be holding further adult clinics throughout September and October. These dates will be confirmed for October and November and in line with vaccination deliveries. If you are unable to leave your home for medical reasons we can arrange for a District Nurse to administer your flu vaccination at home.
Give the surgery a call and speak to our reception team to book now!
