Important Information regarding Influenza Vaccine for patients aged 50-64

We are aware that patients aged 50-64 may receive a letter from NHS England advising that Flu Vaccine is available.  This is not correct and we would urge our patients NOT to contact the Surgery to book an appointment if you are aged 50-64 currently.  We do not yet have the vaccine.   Many apologies for this situation.

PATIENTS AGED 50-64 NOT IN AN AT RISK GROUP WILL BE INFORMED AT A LATER DATE OF HOW THEY CAN ACCESS THE FLU VACCINATION

IMPORTANT ADVICE FOR OUR PATIENTS AND CARERS

The most important symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of any of the following:

  • a new continuous cough
  • a high temperature
  • a loss of, or change in, your normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia)

PLEASE DO NOT VISIT THE SURGERY IF YOU HAVE ANY OF THE SYMPTOMS ABOVE, STAY AT HOME AND ARRANGE TO HAVE A TEST ON WWW.GOV.UK.

For most people, COVID-19 will be a mild illness. However, if you have any of the symptoms above, stay at home and isolate for 10 days.  You should arrange to have a test - visit www.gov.uk.

PLEASE DO NOT CALL THE SURGERY TO REQUEST A TEST WE DO NOT HAVE TESTS AVAILABLE
