Flu Season 2020/21 – 50-64 age group

The practice has received the following statement for issue to our patients to update with regards to the planned extension of eligible age groups, to those aged 50-64 years, to receive a free flu vaccination.

Please note that people in the 50-64-year old age group will not be vaccinated until November and December, providing there is sufficient vaccine, and no appointments will be offered for this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first. If you are 50-64 and you are in one of the other groups which is eligible for the flu vaccination, for example you have a health condition which puts you at risk from the flu, you will be invited earlier. NHS England – Midlands

We will continue to update our patient population with further information as and when it becomes available.

PLEASE NOTE: As of November 2020 the practice remains to have received no further guidance to follow on from the above. As and when we have any further guidance we will update our patients.
