Your Flu and COVID Booster vaccinations will be given together this year from the Practice. We will be running Saturday clinics from September 18th in cohort order and we will contact you to arrange your appointment in due course. It would be very helpful if you wait for your appointment with us rather than attending a Pharmacy for a Flu Vaccination in order to receive these 2 vaccinations together.
Cohorts will be as follows:
Stage 1: Adults aged 16 and over who are immunosuppressed – Those living in residential care homes for older adults – 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 50 years and over – All adults aged 16-49 who are in an influenza or COVID-19 at-risk group as outlined in the ‘Green Book’ – Adult household members of immunosuppressed individuals
Can I take this opportunity to thank you for your patience with us during an extremely busy and challenging time here at Temple Sowerby and every other GP Practice. Every single member of our team has gone above an beyond in responding to the demands that have been placed on us during the Pandemic. Paula Breen – Practice Manager
