THIS MESSAGE HAS BEEN ANNOUNCED DIRECTLY FROM NHS ENGLAND AND PUBLIC HEALTH ENGLAND IN RESPONSE TO THE GOVERNMENT OFFERING FLU IMMUNISATIONS FOR THE 50-64 AGE GROUP.

Please note that, if you are aged between 50-64 and NOT in a clinical risk group, the earliest you will be offered a flu vaccination is NOVEMBER - PROVIDING THERE IS SUFFICIENT VACCINE.  No appointments will be offered for people in this age group until then.  This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first.  If you are aged 50 - 64 and are in a clinical AT RISK group which is eligible for the flu vaccination, for example, you have a health condition which puts you at risk from the flu, you will be invited earlier.

PLEASE DO NOT CALL THE SURGERY TO ENQUIRE ABOUT MAKING ANY APPOINTMENTS UNTIL NOVEMBER WHEN HOPEFULLY WE WILL KNOW MORE.  THANK YOU.
