This year everyone requiring a flu vaccine will need to have a pre-booked appointment.
In order to book an appointment you can follow the instructions to book an appointment online or alternatively you can give us a call.
If you are over 65 and in at risk group you will be able to book appointments in from the 17th September. If you are under 65 you will be able to book an appointment from the 3rd October.
Someone who is classified as in an at risk group and is under the age of 65 is someone who is/ has:
- Respiratory Disease
- A heart condition
- Is a carer
In order to minimise the risk of coming into mixing with other patients we are offering drive through clinics at the Alexandra Avenue clinic for patients with a private vehicle or have access to a private vehicle (this could be a car driven by a friend/ relative and come to an appointment). You will be required to wear a face covering, upon arriving you will be required to park your vehicle, take your arm out ready for the flu jab and wait 5 minutes before driving off.
In order to have more information about the drive through clinic or see how the process will work please watch the following video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mGB0HIwsrZg&feature=youtu.be
If you do not have access to a private vehicle then you will be able to book an appointment at the Ridgeway Surgery.
