Welcome to our website which we hope you will find both useful and informative.
Due to the high number of people eligible for the flu this year.
We are doing the clinic over multiple days the first being the 22nd September 2020 between 9.00 and 18.00. This is not a walk in clinic and you must not just turn up.
If you have not received the letter for the 22nd then please don't attend on this day, you will be invited to an additional clinic being held in October.
The following groups will receive one of these letters:
• over 65s
•18 - 65 year olds with certain long-term medical conditions such as asthma and diabetes
•18 - 65 year olds who are at high risk regarding COVID-19
The following groups will not receive a letter inviting them to the clinic and will instead need to book an appointment - these appointments will be available from 1st October:
•healthcare workers and carers
•people living in the same house as someone high risk
•children between 2 - 18 that are high risk
People aged 50 - 64 are also entitled to the flu vaccination this year but will be subject to availability and will be contacted at a later date.
Thank you for your cooperation.
Please see information on the Somerset Coronavirus Helpline.
We are asking our patients and their representatives only to attend the surgery if you:
