FLU VACCINATION 2022

We have all heard that nationally Covid vaccinations will begin to be administered to the following priority groups:

People living in Care Homes

Staff of Care Home Residents

People who are housebound

Once these cohorts have been delivered the program will then roll out to all patients aged 50 and over.

Mansion House Surgery plan to deliver the Covid19 vaccination and we will contact you to book your appointment once we are vaccinating the cohort you are in.

For more information about the vaccine program please see:

Our flu vaccines will arrive at the surgery week commencing 19 September 2022 (vaccines can arrive any day that week subject to courier delivery).  We are planning on holding our first clinic on Saturday 24 September 2022.  This will be for patients who will be aged 65 and over by 31 March 2023 and patients who are eligible because they are in a vulnerable/at risk category aged 18 and over (one of the clinical "at risk" groups for flu listed).  If you book for a flu vaccine and are eligible for a Covid booster vaccine you will be offered the opportunity to have your Covid vaccine at the same time, subject to us having Covid vaccine stock.  It is safe to have the vaccines at the same time. 

We will be unable to vaccinate any of the age 50 to 64 not at risk patients until on or after 15 October 2022.  This is to ensure that all vulnerable patients are vaccinated first.  Any patients in this category aged 50 to 64 not at risk group who book prior to this date will have their appointment cancelled and rebooked.  We apologise for any inconvenience but this is the national guidance that we have to follow.

Saturday 24 September 2022 – Over 65s and 18 to 64 Eligible only

What is Flu?

Flu, short for influenza, is an infectious and common viral illness spread by coughs and sneezes.

It's not the same as the common cold. Flu is caused by a different group of viruses. Symptoms tend to be more severe and last longer.

You can catch flu all year round, but it is especially common in winter, which is why it is also known as "seasonal flu".
