Flu Immunisations 2020-21

The flu programme this year has been taken out of GP Practices and is being delivered by the Health Board.  The Health Board Flu Programme Team have been apologising to members of the public who received a flu vaccination appointment letter after their allotted appointment date and will ensure that everyone who is eligible will be offered the opportunity to be vaccinated. The high volume of emails to their dedicated flu vaccine email account mean that they are prioritising messages from people who have already received letters and need to rearrange appointments - they will respond to everyone who has contacted them in due course.   This year's flu vaccination programme is being delivered in phases.  People aged 65 and over will be among the first to receive appointment letters, followed by those aged 18-64 who have health conditions that make them more vulnerable should they catch flu and then other at-risk groups.  Anyone who has not received their appointment letter yet and fall into one of the eligible groups, should await receipt of the letter rather than contacting the dedicated helpline at this stage.  Appointment letters will advise a time, date and venue for your flu immunisation.  Various venues are involved, but the GP surgery is not an option this year.

The contact number to change the time or date of your appointment is given below.  Please note this number changed on Tues 20.10.20, therefore, if your letter was sent before that date it will state the old number, which is no longer in use.  Please do not telephone the surgery with queries relating to flu vaccine unless instructed otherwise by the Flu Programme Team.
