FLU VACCINATIONS 2018

We would like to advise our patients of the situation this year with FLU VACCINATIONS.

 

All our vaccinations are being supplied in batches and we are unlikely to have the numbers we need until the end of October. Because of this we have been unable to fix a date for our flu clinic, but we expect it to be early in November.

 

For this reason you will not receive your Flu Invite letter until late October, so we would ask that you did not phone the surgery in the meantime as we will be unable to give you a date for the flu clinic until it becomes clearer when our vaccinations will arrive.

 

Thank you for your patience.

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make anflight_and_luggage appointment with the Nurse Practitioner to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required. There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below

Europe Europe & RussiaNorth America North America
Central America Central Americaindia South America
egypt Carribeanlithuania Africa
bulgaria Middle Eastpoland Central Asia
china East Asiachina Australasia and Pacific

It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least THREE MONTHS before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the Nurse Practitioner to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.

Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
