Vaccination Schedule for October 2021
The following groups are covered by the Government Influenza Vaccination Scheme.
- All persons aged 65 years and over
- Children aged 2 to 17
- Patients aged 6-23 months and 18-64 years at increased risk of influenza-related complications. Residents of Nursing Homes and other long stay facilities
- Healthcare workers
- Household contacts of people with underlying conditions or Down Syndrome
- Out of Home Care Givers
Initially we will only have Influenza vaccines for those 65 and over.
Covid -19 Vaccination boosters are also being supplied for people aged 8o and over only. These will be given at the same time as the Influenza Vaccination. Only people who have had their primary Covid immunisation should attend. If you have not yet been vaccinated against Covid 19, then you should attend the Government Vaccination Clinics.
Clinics for the cohorts 80-84 and 85+ are by appointment only, and need to be booked through the Booking link below on the relevant day, by age cohort. If anyone has difficulty booking, please contact reception.
People aged 65 to 79 are invited to the clinics as per their age group, as scheduled below. No appointment is necessary for these clinics. Please attend only on your appointed day, as otherwise we will have difficulty dealing with everyone. Please wear a short sleeve shirt, or loose neck, so that we can access your arm without the need to undress.
We do not currently have information, or supplies for the Vulnerable groups in the 18 – 64 age group, and we do not currently have supplies for the childhood vaccination (which will be an nasal vaccine for children aged 2 to 17), but we will update this website when we have details for these groups. Please keep an eye on this website. The receptionists will not have any more information than is on this website., so please only call reception if you have a specific problem.
We hope to provide vaccinations for people outside the government’s selective criteria privately. Again, this depends on supply.
We will update this site for People in High Risk groups, and children, when we have supplies confirmed.
