Flu Vaccines and Covid-19 Booster Jabs

Monday, 25 October 2021

Your GP Practice will have a flu vaccination reserved for you if you are over 50 or have a long term condition that makes you more vulnerable.

If you are in one of these groups please wait for your practice to contact you. You do not need to go elsewhere for your vaccination.

Flu Vaccines and COVID-19 Booster Jabs

Are you eligible for a free NHS flu vaccine?

From 6th of September 2021, we will be running our Flu vaccination clinics alongside the COVID-19 booster vaccinations

We will be inviting patients in accordance with the priority groups as below but all eligible patients will be able to have their vaccination at our practice. We have ordered adequate supply of flu vaccine to meet the increased demand this coming winter.

Once we have added the clinics, we will be inviting you as per the priority groups announced by the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) to attend for their Flu jab and Booster COVID-19 Vaccinations. We are waiting for the final recommendations from the JCVI.

Please keep an eye on our website for further updates.

Below is a full list of the priority groups of those eligible for the free flu and COVID-19 booster this year (2021/2022).

Please note invitations will be sent in two stages:

Stage 1
Adults aged 16 years and over who are immunocompromised
Those living in residential care homes for older adults
All adults aged 70 years or over
Adults aged 16 years and over who are considered clinically extremely vulnerable
Frontline health and social care workers
Stage 2
All adults aged 50 years and over
All adults aged 16 – 49 years who are in an influenza or COVID-19 at risk group
Adult household contacts of immunosuppressed individuals
Clinics will be held at our site in Birch Hill RG12 7WW with a couple of Saturday clinics in September to be held at Edgbarrow School in Crowthorne.

Please do not ring us just yet to book as the final details have to be worked through. We will contact you once the clinics are open for booking. Please DO NOT CALL or email the surgery regarding the booster or flu vaccine as we cannot offer you an appointment until all the clinics have been created.

Please help us by making sure we have your up to date contact details including your mobile phone number and/or email address.

Thank you.
