Flu Vaccinations 2020-2021

Flu information

We have contacted everyone who is eligible to receive flu vaccination this year by letter or email. We encourage you to contact us as soon as possible as our flu clinics are booking up quickly and we only have a limited number of appointments left.

Flu clinic appointments can be booked online (please book the correct clinic for your age group) or by calling us on 01275 841630. Please call in the afternoon if possible as our phone lines are less busy after lunch.

Vaccine Availability

 

  • Patients aged 65 and over - we have a couple of small catch-up clinics for people who missed our main clinics. Please contact us if you still need this vaccination.
  • Children aged 2 to 17 - our clinics have largely been completed but we are able to support anyone who missed these. Please note that vaccines will be given at school (not the surgery) for all primary school children and all year 7 children. If you have missed the vaccine at school the provider (Sirona) will arrange catch up clinics.
  • Patients aged 18 to 64 - appointments are still available - our last clinic this year will be 30th November so please contact us before then
  • Patients aged aged 50 - 64 are now able to book in for flu vaccination on 8th or 15th December. To help our busy reception team please book your appointment online using the Patient Access website or NHS App. Please choose the description "FLU JAB all 50 to 64 year olds or invited 18 to 50 year olds at the FOLK HALL"

Booking Flu Appointments

  • Please book your appointment online if at all possible. If you do not have access to book appointments online please download the NHS App and follow the registration process within the app.
  • When booking online, please take care to choose the correct clinic - they will be clearly marked as 'Over 65s' or 'Under 65s'. We regret that if you book into the wrong clinic we will have to cancel that appointment. Please also note that the description will tell you whether the clinic is at the surgery or the Folk Hall (on Portishead High Street)
