50-64 Flu Vaccinations
Patients may have seen Matt Hancock on BBC news this morning, sharing details about the flu vaccination programme for 50-64 year olds. We welcome this news from the government extending the eligibility for flu vaccination, however General practices are learning this information at the same time as you. We are awaiting further details on the supply of vaccinations and guidance on how these will be offered and scheduled.
Your practice is currently experiencing a very high level of demand and the services we provide are under increased pressure due to sickness absence amongst members of our clinical and administrative teams, due to Covid infection. With this in mind, please DO NOT call or visit the surgery regarding flu vaccinations if you are aged between 50-64 with no pre-existing health conditions that make you eligible for a flu vaccination already, as this will increase the pressure on our services at a critical time. It is also likely that we will have to suspend most non-essential services to allow us to support the mass vaccination programmes. Please help us by being considerate with your requests - and your expectations - when communicating with our reception and clinical staff.
We would like to thank you for your patience and for bearing with us during this very challenging period. Please be reassured that patient care is our priority and we will be in touch with you as soon as we are able to take bookings for the 50-64 flu vaccinations.
