Planning for free flu jab clinics for 50 to 64 years old underway for this December

20th November, 2020

The Government announced earlier today that people aged between 50 and 64 years old (who are not in a clinical at-risk group) will be offered a free flu vaccination in clinics operating across Sussex this December.

GP practices are now working with the NHS and partners to finalise plans to deliver flu in a fresh round of clinics to this cohort safely during the pandemic.

GPs have a list of everyone who is registered with them aged 50 to 64 and will invite them to a clinic directly, from their GP or pharmacy.

People in Sussex that are aged 50 to 64 years old do not need to take any action and are asked to wait for contact from their GP and not to call their practice about the flu vaccine at this stage, whilst they finalise plans for further vaccination clinics.

This will ensure GPs and their staff are free to help those in immediate need – you will be contacted directly and do not need to take any further action at this time.

With Covid-19 circulating, GPs have been working hard to ensure everyone eligible can get their free flu vaccine, including implementing big changes this year to the way the NHS is providing the free flu jab due to the pandemic.

The local NHS wants to reassure everyone that getting the flu vaccine is safe during the lockdown and there is plenty of time for everyone eligible to book and get their flu jab. Providers of vaccination will take all necessary measures to keep you safe, including wearing protective equipment and staggering clinic appointment times.

Some people aged 50 to 64 years old are entitled to a flu jab sooner:-

If you are aged 50 – 64 and are in a clinical at risk group which is eligible for the flu vaccination, for example, you have a health condition which puts you at risk or

Anyone of any age, including those between 50-64 who is a household member of carer of a shielded patient.

Thank you for your patience, understanding and co-operation.

Business As Usual

Dear Patients, it’s a difficult time with a new lockdown having been announced by the Government for England from Thursday 5th December 2020. Please be reassured that we continue to operate as your GP surgery as we have done throughout the pandemic. Whilst we have a telephone consultation first, if we need to bring you in we will organize that from the phone appointment as usual. Wishing you the best through the pandemic, please do tell us if you need help. Dr. Romans, Dr. Sayers & Team.
