Flu Vaccinations 2020
Our first Flu Clinic will run on Saturday 3rd October and is a "Drive or Walk Through" service to be held on the Tenbury Pay and Display car park.
The clinic is only for all patients over 65 who will receive a letter of invitation that they should bring with then as it contains their NHS and Practice Registration Number.
There will be a drive through marquee situated on the left by the swimming pool. Patients will either be vaccinated whilst sitting in their own cars or have to join a socially distanced queue. The route in will be via the side of the library.
The police, Council, and the Highways Agency are working with us to manage traffic and reduce any congestion. We are also being assisted by the Marshalls that are used during the Tenbury Show.
On Saturday 21st November we will run a similar drive through clinic for the under 65s AT RISK patients.
Children aged 2-3rs can be vaccinated (nasal spray) in the surgery in the week of the 21st September. Please call to book an appoinment. Walk in patients will not be seen due to maintaining social distancing measures.
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.
