We have now received further details of the 2020 flu vaccination campaign and are currently working on a plan to deliver vaccinations to all eligible patients. We will let you know our plans as soon as possible and we will contact all eligible patients in due course. Please do not contact us at this stage.
Initially, those patients who are 65 and over and those of all ages in the usual At Risk Groups will be prioritised.
The purchasing arrangements for flu vaccinations from central government stocks for the 50-64 year old patients who are not eligible under the usual criteria are as yet unconfirmed. If vaccination for this additional cohort proceeds as currently planned, it will be in a 2nd phase in Nov-Dec.
As a practice we could have up to 6,000 flu vaccinations to deliver this season with social distancing limitations.
Our aim is to deliver a Covid secure campaign to all eligible patients as soon as possible.
We ask that you please be patient and work with us to enable a successful campaign for all when we announce how this will be administered.
