Market Overton & Somerby Surgeries 2018/19 – Seasonal Flu Campaign

Market Overton & Somerby Surgeries 2018/19 – Seasonal Flu Campaign

All of our patients will be aware of the pressures faced during the Winter of 2017/18 and for that reason we wanted to advise you what our plans are for this year and how we are making sure that the INFLUENZA vaccination clinics ensure the best possible protection for our patients.

All those over the age of 65, must be vaccinated with the FLUAD vaccination. Our suppliers (who are providing FLUAD for the entire country) have given delivery dates which are later than usual this year but we are confident (following discussion with Public Health England), that the dates of clinics still give the best protection possible to you. The clinics for the over 65s are:

Saturday 29 September at Somerby Surgery
Saturday 13th October at Market Overton Surgery

All those under the age of 65 and confirmed as at risk, will continue to be vaccinated with the same Quadrivalent vaccine that was used last year. The clinics for the under 65s are:

Saturday 29 September at Somerby Surgery
Saturday 13th October at Market Overton Surgery

There will be further flu vaccination appointments available at both Market Overton and Somerby Surgeries after the above Saturday clinics, ask Reception for details.

Making an appointment: You can make an appointment today by calling the Practice directly or visiting us and speaking to a member of the Reception team. Please feel free to book in as soon as you are able to – we look forward to seeing you and in the meantime use the following link to understand why Market Overton & Somerby Surgeries are involved in offering this service to you.
