OVER 65's
We have received a small portion of our vaccine order for the over 65 years of age; the rest of our order is still delayed due to road freight challenges.

AGED 18 - 64 AT RISK
If you are under 65 and at risk and have an appointment booked for the 9th October 2021, please still attend. We have enough vaccines available for these patients already booked into the clinic, otherwise there are appointments available for the 18 to 64 age band who fall in to an at risk group on 19th October 2021.  Please note this is a different vaccine type for this age group compared to the over 65 vaccine.

We apologise for not being able to offer more clinics and provide more details but for logistical reasons we cannot plan clinics until we have received delivery of the vaccine.  This is a national issue and other GP surgeries are also affected by this delay unfortunately this is out of our control.

Over 65’s

We are receiving lots of calls regarding the flu vaccination for our over 65 at risk patients. We know our patients are eager to know when they are likely to receive their flu vaccination in preparation for winter. We are as eager as you!

You may be aware that we were originally set to hold a vaccination clinic on 18th September for patients over the age of 65 however the delivery of the appropriate vaccination for these patients had been delayed.  At present we still have no update on when we are due to receive the delivery of the over 65’s vaccine. What we do know is that we a due an update on what’s happening early next week.

We also know that this is national issue and other GP surgeries are also affected by this delay and therefore this is out of our control.
