FLU CLINICS & BREAST SCREENING UNIT

 FLU VACCINATIONS 2019

 

Once again this year, on instructions from NHS England, the practice is giving two different vaccinations, based on the latest guidance from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation, who advise NHS England on which immunisations to provide.

Letters will be sent out to all eligible patients over the next few weeks.

If there is someone you rely on to care for you, please ask them to contact their own GP Practice as they may be eligible for a free flu vaccination.

For all patients in this group who are eligible, we will be giving the Quadrivalent Influenza Vaccination® which offers protection from four different strains of flu: this is based on the World Health Organisation’s recommendation for the 2018/19 flu season.
