As you will already know deliveries of flu vaccines to Primary Care this year have been delayed by problems encountered by the suppliers. We have been affected by these issues. We have received a limited delivery of vaccines and are currently awaiting an update of delivery dates for the remainder of our order.
In the meantime we will be running a clinic on Tuesday 19th October 2021 for patients aged 65-74 years old. Invites have been sent out by text messages to those patients. The remaining patients eligible for the flu vaccine will be invited once we have received confirmation of further deliveries.
If you’re worried and do not want to wait you can also get your flu vaccine from pharmacies and participating supermarkets.
