This winter, because of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the flu vaccine is also being offered to those aged 50 to 64 years old. We will contact you when you are able to book an appointment for this vaccine. For more information about the extended programme please go to the gov.uk website. To find out more about the 50-64 vaccine being used (the Flublok vaccine) please also head to the gov.uk website.
For more information on the flu vaccine please go to https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/vaccinations/flu-influenza-vaccine/
Please use our online booking system or call us to book a slot.
Please note that you will not be given a set time but instead a 15 minute time slot to arrive in. Eg. Appointment booked at 9.08am – your arrival time slot window will be 9am to 9.15am and you MUST ONLY come within that 15 minute time frame. The time frames are in 15 minute windows (9am to 9.15am, 9.15am to 9.30am etc).
We will also send a text out a couple of days before to remind you of your time window.
Due to COVID we require the following requests, please:
Thank you in advance for your understanding during these difficult times.
The two posters below give more information on which flu vaccines will be given this year, including which flu vaccine children should have.
Please also be aware that practices in Erewash unfortunately do not receive the flu vaccines at the same time. This means you may get your flu vaccine at a different time to other people in your area, e.g. if your neighbour is registered at a different practice and they get the flu vaccine at a different time to you. It is useful to note that the ‘over 65’s’ vaccine is different to the ‘at risk’ vaccine for under 65’s, and they are delivered separately. This has an impact on when different age groups can get the vaccine. We apologise for this and we are working together as local practices to try and co-ordinate this in future years.
