Why have you flu vaccination at your GP surgery?
We offer a setting where we can check your medical records and make sure you get the most suitable vaccine
- We can check your medical records to see what else you may be eligible for at the same time, eg shingles or pneumococcal vaccinations and get everything done in one visit
- We can offer protection for those who may be forgetful by reducing the risk of duplication in vaccines being administered
We have already ordered a flu vaccination for all of our eligible patients. Our first lot of vaccines for anyone 65 years and over are here already!
Please note that we have to order vaccine well in advance of flu season and assure NHS England that we have enough vaccines for every eligible patient.
We have to buy these vaccines for you and we can only return a limited number that go unused, the rest have to be paid for by the surgery.
SHINGLES VACCINATION, ARE YOU ELIGIBLE? Please see the homepage or facebook/twitter

Yellow card scheme
We can all help make medicine safer by reporting any side effects we experience, using the Yellow Card Scheme, a platform set up to help collect and evaluate reports of Adverse Drug Reactions, where you can report Adverse Drug Reactions you have experienced, or report on behalf of someone else. These are then submitted to the Medicines and Healthcare Regulatory Agency (MHRA) for review.
