FLU JABS AUTUMN 2020

It is really important that all people eligible for the annual flu jab do have one this year, especially in light of the problems from corona virus. We are now booking clinics for the vulnerable and over 65 year old age groups. The dates are: Saturday 12th September and Friday 235th September.  Please either email  chagford.hc@nhs.net or call to book 01647 433320. To see if you are eligible please follow the latest  link:  https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/vaccinations/who-should-have-flu-vaccine

50-64 year olds requesting a flu vaccination in 20/21

 

Whilst we’ve received information that all 50-64 year olds may be eligible for a free flu vaccination as part of plans to protect more people against seasonal flu, these free vaccinations will be subject to delivery later in the year.

 

This allows us to focus on those who are in an at risk group, such as pregnant women and people with long term health conditions. They will be given priority and offered the vaccine first; if you are in this category you will be contacted.

 

If you are aged 50-64 and not in one of the at risk categories you will be made aware in the coming months if you will be able to attend for vaccination. If the programme is extended, this is likely to be November or December.

 

Of course if you wish to access a vaccine prior to this date you can pay to have this at your local pharmacy as in previous years, otherwise please wait for more information.
