Autumn Vaccine Programme
Our Autumn vaccine programme is due to start in October, we will be delivering both Flu & Covid vaccines to our eligible patients. Patients will be offered both vaccines at the same time. If you do only wish to have one of the vaccines, please still attend your given clinic. For information on eligibility please see below.
We are receiving a limited number of vaccines each week, therefore we are prioritising our most vulnerable patients to be vaccinated first. The invites to our first clinics (Saturday 1st October & Saturday 15th October) have been sent to patients over the age of 65 & patients who have a compromised immune system. If you think you have been missed, please contact the surgery.
The remaining eligible patients will be invited after our clinic on 15th October, please be patient and wait to be contacted. You will be sent a text message with a personal link to book an appointment. We would be grateful if you could ensure your most recent mobile number is on your GP record. If you do not have a mobile number you will be sent a letter with a timeslot. If you cannot attend the date you are given, you will automatically be invited to another clinic, please do not ring reception as you will receive another invite.
In July 2022 the government announced that the Flu vaccine would once again be offered to healthy patients between the ages of 50-64. However, the most at-risk patients are to be prioritised and this cohort should not expect to be invited until later in the season.
Covid infection rates in North Tyneside are still higher than the national average. Lateral Flow tests are available for some patients, click here to see if you can access free lateral flow kits.
We ask that you please attend the surgery alone unless you have a carer. Please inform our reception team via telephone of any change to your mobile number. You can find out how to wear a mask and what you can use as a mask here.
Even after July 19th 2021 when you attend any healthcare setting you must:
- Wash your hands
- Keep your distance
These measures remain in place to keep you and our vulnerable patients safe. Thank you for your understanding.
We have a letterbox provided outside of the building should you need to drop off a prescription request.
