If you have a flu vaccination appointment booked with us please read this as its very important!!!!
How the Flu clinics will run this year....
- When you attend for your flu vaccination we will be letting a maximum of 15 people in at a time, those who are booked in for a particular time slot.
- If you are early you will be asked to wait until your appointment time, so please arrive for the correct time you have been given.
- Please do not bring anyone with you who does not have an appointment.
- You will have your temperature checked before you are allowed in the building so please do not come if you feel unwell. You will also be asked to use our hand sanitiser.
- Please wear a mask or face covering to protect yourself and others.
- You will be asked to have your coat off and arm ready for the clinician so please wear loose clothing.
- You will be asked some questions by admin staff regarding consent and if you have had a vaccination in previous years.
- You will then spend as little time as possible with the clinician whilst you have the actual vaccination, so please do not try to ask about other problems, this appointment is purely for a flu vaccination and nothing else.
- There will be reception staff around to help guide you round the building so we can ensure all patients are socially distanced.
In line with recent government recommendations, from Monday 18th May 2020 we expect all patients entering our building to wear a face covering. It should be cotton ideally.
This link explains the science behind our decision:
These coverings can be made from things you've already got at home, like an old T-shirt, or even a sports sock with just a few well-made snips with scissors and a little bit of sewing. But if you're not so confident in your creative abilities, there are plenty of companies online that can be found with a quick Google search.
Children under 2 are not expected to wear a face covering.
Younger children (primary) who cannot manage a mask are also not expected to wear one
Our entire practice team will be doing the same.
Face coverings protect *other people* from droplets that you may release into the air, they do not protect you unless everyone wears them.
In England, you must by law wear a face covering in the following settings:
