Flu Vaccinations are now available for the 2018 / 19 season.

Patients who are eligible for a free Flu Jab will have received a letter early September inviting them to attend one of the Flu Clinics.

Due to the delayed delivery of some of the vaccines this year’s flu clinics are being held over 5 Saturdays @ Hanway Road and 1 Friday and Saturday @ Stubbington Avenue surgery.

It is important to try and attend your allotted clinic where possible as the clinics have been arranged to coincide with the delivery of the particular vaccines. However, the surgery will do their best to accommodate patients’ needs wherever possible.

There are 3 different Flu Vaccinations this year;

  • a nasal spray for patients aged 2 – 18 who are in an @ risk group and healthy 2 & 3 years olds; these vaccination are not available for the Surgery to order until 28th September
  • a new vaccination for patients aged 65 years and over – this vaccination offers enhanced protection for this age group. The surgery will receive these particular vaccinations in a staged deliver over a 2 month period so it is important you attend the allotted clinics where possible to ensure availability
  • the regular vaccination that will be given to patients 19-64 who are in an @ risk group and patients 2 – 18 years old in an @ risk group who do not wish to have the nasal spray.
