FLU VACCINATIONS Posted on 2 Oct 2020

FLU VACCINATIONS 2020

There are changes to how the flu vaccination delivery is being implemented this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

At Mains Medical Centre we will only be vaccinating 18-64 year olds with an underlying health condition, asthma, COPD, diabetes, heart disease etc.  Please phone to make an appointment for this asap if you fall within this group.

Pregnant patients will be vaccinated by the midwife service.

All other groups of patients to be vaccinated including over 65s and children will be organised by the HSCP.

We appreciate people have concerns about this but this is outwith our control at the practice and has been agreed at a national level.  We would encourage you to attend the HSCP clinic when you get your appointment to get your vaccination to protect against flu this winter.  For any further information please follow this link:
