We have planned our flu vaccination programme very carefully as usual. We have already vaccinated over 400 patients.
This year, due to the introduction of a new flu vaccine, deliveries from the manufacturers have been phased over a three month period. This is happening nationally. We have been following Public Health England’s advice in targeting those most at risk first (for example our nursing home residents), but can assure our patients that we will have enough vaccine to vaccinate everyone by early November. We are encouraging everyone to make an appointment for vaccination now.
