Keeping you safe
All clinics will be held at Elgar House Surgery. On arrival, please come to the back door, as the front door will be the exit for patients.
We are asking patients to follow these guidelines when attending their flu vaccination appointment:
Please wear a face covering when attending the practice.
Arrive promptly, ideally as close you your appointment time as possible.
Please wear clothing that ensures your arm is ready for the vaccination as soon as you go in to see the clinician e.g. a short sleeve top, with any jacket /coat /jumper removed whilst you wait.
Please cancel your appointment as soon as possible if you are unable to attend – these clinics are extremely popular and this means we can offer the slot to someone else.
As with all appointments at the current time, please do no visit the practice if you have any of the following: A fever, cough, have lost your sense of taste or smell, have recently had a positive COVID-19 test result or are awaiting a COVID-19 test result. Please cancel and rearrange your appointment if you have any of these symptoms.
Covid Booster Vaccine
Please note that we will be aiming to run dual flu and Covid booster clinics, as long as the practice receives deliveries. Unfortunately, if we do not receive the delivery in time for the flu clinic, the Covid booster will be changed to a later date. If you have any questions about the booster, please contact us at the time of booking.
