FLU INFORMATION 2018-2019
This year the Department of Health has recommended two different influenza vaccines:-
Trivalent for over 65 years in the at risk groups, healthy over 65 years and healthcare workers over 65 years.
Quadrivalent for pregnant ladies, patients aged 18-65 years in the at risk groups and healthcare workers under 65 years.
For children up to 18 years the nasal vaccination still applies.
Eligible patients will be contacted and invited to make an appointment at the main surgery - we are sorry to say that there will be no clinics at the Warren Surgery this year.
Unfortunately due to issues at the supplies company our original delivery schedule has been altered and put back by two weeks. Therefore clinics will commence at the end of September and continue dependant on delivery dates.
IMPORTANT CLOSURE DATES
The surgery will be closed for training purposes from 12.30pm on the following dates:-
20th September 2018 & 15th November 2018
If medical assistance is required please telephone 01392 652556 BEFORE 6pm and 111 AFTER 6PM
