An influenza vaccination is particularly recommended for patients over 65 plus those with heart, lung disease, kidney disease or diabetes. Also those resident in nursing and rest homes. Please contact the reception staff in mid-September for details of the vaccination dates and to make an appointment. Posters giving further details will be displayed in the waiting room. Home visits can be arranged for those patients who are housebound and have no one that can bring them to surgery. Please contact reception for details.
If you are the main carer for a relative or friend receiving a flu vaccination, you are entitled to one as well. If you are not in one of the above mentioned categories but would like to receive a flu vaccination, some local pharmacies will offer this service for a fee.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse 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
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse 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.
