    Important flu clinic information – Walton Surgery 2018

    The way we run our flu vaccination clinics will be different this year due to a change in vaccinations and a very late, and spread out, delivery schedule. We will have one vaccine for eligible patients under 65 e.g those with certain long term conditions such as asthma and diabetes, and a different vaccination for those aged 65+, called Fluad. There is only one National supplier for the Fluad vaccination, which means that our delivery dates have been staggered from the end of September to the end of October. This is a national issue and there we have had to set a strict timetable accordingly.


    Flu clinics for all eligible patients will be as follows:

    UNDER 65’S ONLY:    29th SEPTEMBER 2018 9:00AM TO 12NOON

    ALL PATIENTS INCLUDING OVER 65’S:       20th OCTOBER 2018 9:00AM TO 1:00PM



    Note that dates may be subject to change due to circumstances beyond our control


    For eligible patients under 65: you will receive notification of eligibility during September. Please contact us to book your appointment once you have been notified.


    For patients who will be 65 and over by 31st March 2019: please book to attend either of the OCTOBER or NOVEMBER clinics.
