Dinnington Group Practice Annual Flu Vaccination Programme
We are inviting all patients over 65 and those under 65 who suffer from diabetes, heart disease, respiratory disease or other chronic illness. If you have a learning disability or are a main carer you may also be eligible. If you are a Carer in the community or in a care home you are also eligible. All pregnant women should have the flu vaccine to protect themselves and their baby.
All patients within the above categories will have a vaccine reserved at the surgery and will receive a letter or a text inviting them to a clinic.
All healthy 2 and 3 year olds are entitled to flu protection and will be invited to clinics arranged in normal surgery hours.
If you do not wish to have the flu vaccination, please inform the surgery by phone so that we can offer the vaccination to somebody else.
This year there are different vaccines depending on whether you are 65 and over or under 65. There is a national supply problem with the under 65 vaccine which is affecting how we run the flu clinics this year.
The clinics are being held at:
