KEARSLEY FLU CAMPAIGN

This year, the way we run our Flu campaign will be very different to previous years due to Covid-19 and social distancing rules.  To protect our staff and patients, patients will be invited by letter to designated Flu Clinic Sessions.  Please read the information below to help you understand our new look Flu Clinics.

Kearsley Flu Campaign

  • Clinics will be held on Wednesday afternoons initially 23rd, 30th September and 7th October

 

  • Both doctors and nurses will be vaccinating on the same day.  We cannot guarantee who you will see on the day

 

  • Patients will be invited by letter or text ONLY.  This letter or text will include a date.  When you contact the surgery you will be given a time slot, Time slots will be every half an hour.  We encourage patients to turn up to their designated date and time slot to ensure the clinics run smoothly as we have large numbers of patients to vaccinate

 

  • We will be staggering invite letters nd texts so please do not contact the surgery if you do not receive a letter or text before the first clinic on 23rd September

 

  • If you do not wish to have a Flu vaccine this year please contact the surgery to notify us of this, we can then remove you from our invitation process

 

  • Home visit appointments will be available STRICTLY for housebound patients.  If you are able to attend other appointments we would expect you to attend surgery

  • Upon arrival at surgery you will be asked to queue outside the front entrance of the building so please be prepared for all weather conditions

 

  • When you reach the front of the queue your name will be checked to ensure you are eligible for the vaccine and then booked into a clinic session with either a GP or nurse

 

  • All patients must wear a face mask on entering the building, unless you have an exemption, you will be asked to hand sanitise using our gel dispensers.  Once in the waiting area we ask that patients begin to prepare their arm for vaccinating by removing  outer layers of clothing etc.  The GP or nurse will then call you though to a clinical room.  Staff will be on hand to assist you through our one way system through the building

 

  • Once in the clinical room the GP or nurse will ask you some questions to check your record is correct and that there are no contraindications in issuing the Flu vaccine.  You may also be eligible for the pneumococcal and shingles vaccine these will be offered to you at this time

 

  • Due to the high numbers of patients who need vaccinating the appointment time is set to five minutes so we request that you do not ask to discuss any other issues you may have during this appointment, please complete an Online Consult on our website for this

 

  • Once you have been vaccinated you will exit the building through the back door following the one way system

 

  • If you are UNWELL you should NOT attend the flu clinic :-

  •         1.  You have symptoms of coronavirus which include a continuous cough, high temperature, headache, loss of smell.

  •         2.  If you are self- isolating due to you having symptoms or a member of your household is having symptoms or you have returned within the last 2  weeks from overseas from a country without an air bridge agreement in place.

 

  • The Flu vaccine is not a live vaccine so it is not possible to contact flu from the vaccine but it is possible to feel mildly under the weather for a few days after the vaccine

    Please DO NOT contact the surgery to book an appointment for the Flu vaccine, we will be contacting you
