Flu Vaccinations

 

"Support your local Surgery" We have purchased enough vaccinations for all our 65 age group & our under 65 patients with health requirements, these are order a year in advance, therefore we aske you to book a clinic with us even if you have to wait until November, we do have enough vaccination, however, cannot immunise all 4,000 eligible patients in one month.

 

Clinics are available for booking for people aged 65 and for people with medical conditions, in the At Risk groups, for 64 yrs and below.  We would ask that you do not attend the surgery to book an appointment but to telephone us. Thank you.

Flu jab for 50-64's

 

Update: 25.10.2020 - Bookings being taken for 50-64 age group from 26.10.2020 for appointments in November

 

"Please note that people in the 50-64-year old age group will not be vaccinated until November and December, providing there is sufficient vaccine, and no appointments will be offered for this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first. If you are 50-64 and you are in one of the other groups which is eligible for the flu vaccination, for example you have a health condition which puts you at risk from the flu, you will be invited earlier."

National call and recall service for flu vaccinations – outbound telephone calls

 

Information from the NHSE&I Primary Care Bulletin, Friday 20 November 2020 

The NHS Immunisation Management Service operates the national call and recall service for the flu vaccination programme on behalf of NHSE&I. In addition to initial contact via letters and emails/text messages, it is making approximately 1.3 million follow-up telephone calls to eligible individuals reminding them to book a flu vaccination. Please let your patients know this is a legitimate service and not a fraudulent organisation.

 

Flu vaccination reminder letters – glandular fever

Information from the NHSE&I Primary Care Bulletin, Friday 20 November 2020

Friday 13 November 2020, recently patients with glandular fever as a single health condition may have incorrectly been sent a letter, reminding them to book a flu vaccination. These letters were sent as part of the new NHS Immunisation Management Service (national call and recall service) and are intended to help achieve the target uptake rates this season. The incorrect letters appear to be clustered in the South and East of the country so not all practices will have registered patients who have been affected. NHS Digital has written to general practices to apologise.

 

NHS Digital is writing again to those patients who received the letter advising them they do not need to get a flu vaccination due to their glandular fever health condition.

 

If you have patients in the cohort impacted by this error and is aged 50-64 they are being advised to wait in line with previous guidance. Outside of these parameters, your professional clinical judgement as to whether to proceed with a request for a flu vaccination should be made on a case by case basis for these individuals.
