To our Patients,
Please contact your local branch to ask about the flu clinics they are running this year.
This year the flu vaccination programme has been expanded to protect vulnerable people and support the NHS. A free flu vaccine will be available to:
People who are on the shielded patient list and members of their household
All school year groups up to year 7 (this will be given at school)
People aged over 65
Those with pre-existing conditions including at-risk under 2's
Please note that people aged 50 to 64 will be invited later in the season for a flu vaccine.
We will provide patients with regular updates on the flu vaccination programme through websites, social media and text messages.
The NHS is under tremendous strain at the moment; however we are committed to delivering the flu vaccine to all of our qualifying patients. You will be able to attend any of the Octagon Practices to have your flu vaccine.
Thank you for your continued cooperation.
