Flu vaccination update

Goldsworth Medical Practice continues to be open and safe and our staff are already putting plans in place to be able to safely administer the flu vaccine for patients. This may be done differently to how it has been done in the past.

As soon as details are confirmed, Goldsworth Medical Practice will use our practice website and text message system to inform patients how to get the flu vaccine. Patients should only contact the practice for details regarding the flu vaccination if unable to access details online.

The number of people eligible to receive the flu vaccine on the NHS this year has increased, and it is important that eligible patients get the flu vaccination. This is particularly important for those in at risk groups because flu can cause severe complications. Vaccination clinics will begin towards the end of September in various stages for different cohorts, with those in at risk groups prioritised.
