The way we run our flu vaccination clinics will be different this year due to a change in vaccinations and a very late, and spread out, delivery schedule. We will have one vaccine for eligible patients under 65 e.g. those with certain long term conditions such as asthma and diabetes, and a different vaccination for those aged 65+, called Fluad. There is only one National supplier for the Fluad vaccination, which means that our delivery dates have been staggered. This is a national issue and there we have had to set a strict timetable accordingly.
You should expect to receive your flu vaccination invitation via text message or via letter (if we do not have a mobile number recorded on your notes) if you are eligible.
