We have been notified by Public Health that there is a shortage of the Adult Under 65 (at risk) Flu Vaccine. Therefore should you have an appointment for this vaccine from Tuesday afternoon - please DO NOT ATTEND your appointment. We have been advised that this vaccine will not be available until Mid November and we will be in touch to reschedule.
Lodge Health Flu Clinic starts on Monday 5th October for the over 65’s or under 65 risk groups and this year it is more important than ever to have your annual flu jab. By now the relevant patients will have received their appointment letters.
With Social Distancing things are running a little differently than previous years. Below are things you need to know before you arrive:
•You MUST bring your appointment letter with you and the questionnaire complete
•Do NOT attend your appointment if you are feeling unwell or have COVID symptoms
•Wear your Face covering or mask
•Dress that you can easily exposed arm for your vaccine
•Only arrive at the Health Centre at your allocated time.
•Entry will not be the main reception door – but via a marquee, with a one-way system, exiting the building from a different door. You will not have access to the main reception or the practice.
•A small moving queue may form and patients should remember to keep the 2m Social Distancing.
•Ensure you wear the appropriate clothing should you have to wait outside the marquee to allow social distancing.
•Please do not ask Nurses for medical advice on other problems or to access the main practice – this is the Flu Clinic and to keep everyone safe it needs to run smoothly and with the help of everyone involved.
