INFLUENZA VACCINATION 2021/22
Blundellsands Surgery will be offering the flu vaccination this year as normal, for our patients. If you are eligible for a flu jab please be assured we have ordered your vaccination in for you. You will be contacted in due course with your designated appointment time and date as shown below.
Our Flu Vaccination Clinics will run on the following days:
*Please note you will be sent an invite via text/letter to attend one of the below clinics at a given time slot.*
PLEASE NOTE: Do not attend for your Flu Vaccination if you are displaying any COVID-19 symptoms - You vaccination can be rescheduled for a later date. For guidance on COVID-19 symptoms please click HERE
- You will receive your invite via letter or text (This will be sent to you in due course).
- The clinic will be taking place at the surgery with an implemented ONE WAY system around the building and through the building (We will be inviting less patients per session to ensure social distancing is followed. We also kindly ask that you please follow our one-way system this is to keep everyone safe and maintain social distancing).
- The Surgery Car Park will be CLOSED (Our car park will only be open for disabled badge holders and taxi's picking up patients with poor mobility).
- You will be allocated a specific time slot to attend for your vaccination (It is imperative that you attend at the time you have been allocated. Failure to do this may result in a delay of you being vaccinated).
- Patients will queue outside of the building (This is for everybody's safety - You will only enter the building when instructed by staff to be vaccinated).
- We will have multiple vaccinators at each session (So if you do see other patients arriving please be reassured by this).
- You must wear a face mask or a face covering (In line with government guidelines, patients must continue to wear face masks when within a health care setting, unless exempt).
- Where you can please attend for your flu vaccination alone (This is to avoid unnecessary crowds inside the surgery - We are asking if only those who are due to have a vaccination that day can attend).
- Please ensure you are wearing suitable clothing (The flu vaccination is given in the upper part of your arm, so if you can wear something that allows easy access to this area - This will stop any potential delay and help us stick to our time frames).
- Once you have had your Flu Vaccination please exit the building via the front entrance immediately (This is to avoid patients being inside the building for an unnecessary amount of time and crowds. By doing this you will be helping us decrease any delay for those waiting to be vaccinated as we will not allow them into the building until you have exited).
We truly do appreciate that this is a lot of information for everyone involved, but we have no other alternative, as this is the guidelines. We would be very grateful if you could help us by adhering to the above guidance. Thank you for your help in ensuring our clinics run as smoothly as anticipated.
