Flu vaccination campaign 2020

 

Each year significant planning goes in to preparing for our flu vaccination campaign and this year is no exception. However this year we face some additional challenges that mean we need to change the way we deliver our flu clinics.

Firstly the majority of patients will be invited to attend a clinic on a Saturday and these will not be held at the GP practice sites. Given that up to two thirds of our patient population will be eligible for a flu vaccine (including everyone over the age of 50 for the first time) we are hiring alternative premises to facilitate social distancing which are located in our main town/village locations of Bollington, Disley and Poynton. We will be inviting patients to attend a specific time slot and will aim to invite households as groups together. Face coverings must be worn by both staff and patients. You will receive either a text message or letter advising you of your appointment.

Further updates will be put on the website and shared on social media but we hope that this information is helpful in the mean time.
