FLU VACCINATION PLANS 2020


 This year, due to covid restrictions, we will be holding BOOKED flu clinics only.  We need to ensure our patients safety and ensure we vaccinate the most at risk first.  


 These will be held at BARTESTREE VILLAGE HALL.  All eligible patients will be called during October and November, depending on delivery of vaccines. Clinics will be on Saturdays and you will receive an invitation by letter with a booked slot time to attend. 


 Please bear with us!!  This is a challenging time for us all. We WILL write to you if you are entitled to a flu vaccination (over 65 or under 65 with a chronic illness) 


 Children aged 2 and 3 and patients who are pregnant will be called separately to these clinics as we receive vaccines.


 See our Facebook page  for up to date information. 

SHINGLES & MEASLES IMMUNISATION

Shingles

It's not always possible to prevent shingles, but a vaccine called Zostavax can reduce your chances of developing the condition.

If you still develop shingles after having this vaccine, it may be milder and last for a shorter time than usual.

The vaccine is available on the NHS to some people in their 70s.
