This year we are administering TWO different types of flu vaccines, These are called ‘Tri’ and ‘Quad’ Vaccines. The ‘Quad Flu Vaccine’ is for patients under 65 years of age. The ‘Tri Flu Vaccine’ is for patients age 65 years of age and over. This vaccine is the most suitable for this age bracket and has been recommended by NHS England.
HCA Lisa Goodwin and AHCA Jayne Smith will be administering and running the influenza clinics. The Practice Nurse Julie Fidler will only be administering influenza vaccines to Pregnant Women, Children and patients booked in for appointments regarding long term conditions.
Patients eligible for the Influenza Vaccine will be contacted from Mid-August. Influenza Clinics will begin towards the end of September.
The practice pre-orders influenza vaccines for eligible patients one year in advance, by having your pre-ordered Influenza Vaccine administered at the practice, you are supporting your surgery and reducing the likelihood of services being withdrawn from the practice in the future.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND CO-OPERATION
