2020 Flu FAQ


With winter fast approaching we know that flu is a worry for many of our patients.

This year it is more important than ever for those who are eligible* to safely have the free flu vaccination. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic we must ensure that we follow social distancing and offer alternative methods to how we have historically delivered our flu clinics.

We are excited to announce that this year we will be offering our patients a drive through flu clinic. Conveniently located at Blackbushe Airport (Camberley, GU17 9LQ) the drive through clinic allows patients to be safely administered with the flu vaccine in the comfort of their own car. A map and instructions are included in the Booking Confirmation PDF at the bottom of this page.

Flu vaccination to be extended to 50-64 year olds from 1 December 2020

 

People aged between 50 and 64 are to be invited to have a free flu vaccine as part of the national seasonal flu campaign. 

The Department of Health and Social Care has now confirmed that the flu programme will be extended to the new, younger age group from December.

This means that if you are aged between 50 and 64, you will be invited to get your free flu vaccine from the beginning of next month and into the New Year.

The drive through clinic will be operating on Saturday 28th December and Sunday 13th December  from 9am.

We are encouraging families and neighbours to car share wherever possible, while ensuring to adhere to social distancing. To book multiple people into the same time slot, please call us to arrange.

While we encourage all patients to either drive or be driven to our drive-through clinic, we understand that this may not be possible in some cases. Please call us to discuss your circumstances and we will ensure that you will have access to a flu vaccination.

If you are in one of the other priority eligible groups and have not yet had your vaccination, it’s not too late, you can still book an appointment by contacting your practice or local pharmacy.

To book an appointment, please  phone us on 01276 459040
