Flu Clinic – Saturday 19th September

23/9/2020 update:-

Our Clinic on Saturday 19th September was a huge success. Enormous thanks to our dedicated team who gave up their Saturday to ensure we could vaccinate our patients in a Covid safe way.

The weather was very kind to us and our staff had an enjoyable but exhausting day. They were onsite from 7:30am until around 17:45pm.

We vaccinated nearly 1500 patients in the day and we must thank all of you who attended for remembering to bring your forms, filled in. You all had your sleeves rolled up and most importantly you kept to your your appointment times. This was really important to minimise any queuing and our team are really thankful. You all helped to make the day the success it was.

If you couldn’t make 19th and are on our waiting list:-

We did have some vaccine left, around 40 for the over 65 age group and 160 for the under 65 age group. We are contacting you in order from our list and unfortunately will not have enough vaccine for all our over 65’s, although we are trying to get more. We do have enough for our under 65 age group and are in the process of contacting everyone on the waiting list about the next clinic. We will have a few under 65 vaccines left so if you haven’t been added to our waiting list please contact us on 01253 953070. Although it’s like we will be in contact with you in the next couple of weeks!

  • Just phoned to say that I attended the drive through on Saturday and from the ladies at the front, the nurses and the lady at the end what a wonderful job you all did. From start to finish I was very impressed with all the information passed to me. I’d like to thank the person who’s idea it was to do the drive through. I’m scared of needles and didn’t even realise the nurse had done it
