We will soon be calling patients aged over 18 that would usually get called for flu vaccine for their vaccine before moving on to younger patients that were asked to shield. However, the hospital may also be in touch to patients that they had also asked to shield to get vaccinated in the hospital centres.
There have been a lot of calls recently with people asking when their vaccine appointment will be. You can rest assured that we will contact you when it is your turn.
If you are aged over 65, a patient told to shield or a carer over the age of 18 you can book an appointment online for your Covid vaccine in the South Lake Leisure centre.
Online booking for COVID vaccine
Vaccine Information Page
We have received word that ALL 50-64 year olds can now get a flu vaccine in the surgery- this is subject to availability as we have limited stock. Contact reception to book an appointment.
Note; families of patients who were told to shield during the initial phase of the COVID pandemic are eligible this year.
We expect to start vaccinating patients over 80 in the coming weeks and once we have more stock will be gradually vaccinating patients in younger age groups. You will be contacted when it is time.
