Flu Vaccinations for 50 - 64 age group

You may be aware, from the media, the flu vaccination programme is being offered to everyone between the age of 50 – 64 who are not in a clinical at risk group.
The vaccine ordering portal has now opened and we have been able to order the additional flu vaccines.
We are therefore scheduling a flu clinic for the 50 - 64 age group which will be held at Wallingbrook Health Centre in Chulmleigh at the beginning of December to ensure we are able to vaccinate as promptly as possible.
We will invite eligible patients by text, email or letter, depending on your contact information provided on your records.
Once you have received your invitation can we ask you to book your appointment via one of the following methods:
- Via the NHS App
- Telephone the surgery on 01769 580295.
VACCINATIONS WILL BE GIVEN BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
We will be keeping you up to date with more information and how to guides as the vaccination programme gets underway- keep watching this page or our website.
