INFLUENZA VACCINATION 2019/20

The practice has recognised that last year’s clinics were very busy due to two separate vaccine types being used for different age groups and patients attending out of their allocated time slot.

 This year we are using one vaccine type for all adult patients and we would be grateful if you attend at your allocated time which will improve the smooth running of the flu clinics.

 The practice purchases vaccines in advance for those who are eligible. If you are eligible yet attend a local pharmacy for your flu vaccine then the vaccine reserved for you here is not required and the practice loses essential income. 

 

Please support your surgery and attend the clinics here.

Our 2019 Flu Clinic Dates Start:

Age 65 & Over commence Tuesday 24th September 2019 from 9:00am            

Age 60 & Under commence Tuesday 14th October 2019 from 9:00am

Please contact the surgery on 0151 928 8668 to arrange your appointment

 

UNABLE TO ATTEND YOUR ALLOCATED CLINIC?  

o    Are you unable to attend as you are Housebound? 

If YES do you have a relative / friend / carer who are able to bring you to the surgery? 

If you DO NOT have anyone to bring you to the surgery please contact us BEFORE the 30th September 2019 to inform us, so that we can add you to our Housebound register. You will then be contacted in due course to arrange a Practice Nurse to come and visit you at home to administer your flu vaccination. These visits are likely to begin taking place November 2019.

DO YOU WISH TO DECLINE YOUR FLU VACCINE THIS YEAR?

If YES please contact the surgery as soon as possible to inform us, so that we can update your medical record.
