Flu Jab Information

High Pastures Surgery Flu Clinic information for the 2020 season

The flu season has been very different this year compared to other years at High Pastures Surgery.

Normally we would have two large flu clinics the first two Saturdays in October, where the vast majority of our eligible patients attend and are immunized.

Several factors have caused us problems this year, the COVID-19 Pandemic, the NHS England guidelines on who we should vaccinate first, the staggered deliveries of the actual vaccinations and the need for moving venue due to social distancing government guidelines which would be virtually impossible to meet if the clinics were held in the surgery.

You are of course entitled to get the flu vaccination at your local pharmacy if you prefer. The pharmacist may charge for this depending on your circumstances.

 

Phase 1

Patients were invited to attend Maghull Town Hall 19th September 2020 8.30 – 4.30pm

Patients invited belonged to the following groups:

High Risk formerly Shielding Patients over the age of 65

Patients over the age of 65 registered with the practice as a Carer

1100 patients invited ( 400 patients attended)

 

Phase 2

Patients were invited to attend Maghull Town Hall 10th October 2020 8.30 – 4.30pm

Phase 3

We are at present running Early Morning/Early Evening clinics for small numbers each session approx. 30 patients “invite only” 8.00 – 9am. 

Clinics for 2 -3 year olds (nasal spray vaccination ) clinics are also being held. Other children will be vaccinated in school NHS

These appointments are booked by a member of the practice team, via Telephone call or Text message to patients in high risk groups detailed in Phase 2 above.

Please let us know if you cannot attend so that we can offer the appointment to another patient.

We plan to continue these clinics throughout October and November.

 

Phase 4

Patients who are eligible for a flu vaccination who have not already been invited will be invited once all the high risk groups have been invited/vaccinated/declined. This will be initially for all those aged over 65.

** Flu Clinic for 65+  at Maghull town Hall on Saturday 5th December 9am to 2pm.**

2500 patients invited (433 patients attended) 

The 50 – 64 age groups will be invited to a clinic in early 2021, the surgery will contact all patients who are eligible early in the New Year.
