Hopton and Stanton Surgeries
Flu clinics 2015!
We are now taking bookings for flu jab appointments throughout October. Patients that are eligble for the free NHS vaccine should receive their invite letter soon. We have dedicated bookable appointments with the Practice Nurse and will create more once the current days are fully booked as the flu season continues. Call the Practice on 01359 253700 to arrange you appointment.
You are eligble for a free NHS flu vaccination if you meet any of the criteria below -
- 65 years of age or older
- If you are a carer
- If you suffer from a chronic long-term condition e.g. Asthma, COPD, diabetes, chronic heart disease, neurological conditions, weakened immune system
- Healthcare worker with direct patient contact
- If you are living in a long-stay residential care home or other long-stay care facility
This year children aged 2, 3 or 4 years on 31st August 2015 are also eligible for a vaccine. This is administered by a nasal spray rather than injection. Dedicated clinics to vaccinate children in this age group will be available separately to the other flu clinics. Please do call the Practice to book.
