Haddenham Medical Centre has announced details of its additional flu clinics, as follows:
Adults — Saturday 3rd November
Children — Saturday 17th November.
The NHS has made changes to the flu vaccination programme this year. There will be three flu vaccines for the practice to administer to different age groups. Therefore staff at the Haddenham Medical Centre have arranged their flu clinics differently.
Vaccine stock has been ordered specifically for the numbers in each patient group and cannot be used outside of these groups.
If you are over 65 or will be by 31 March 2019
If you are aged 65 and over then you will receive the "Fluad" vaccine. This is a new adjuvanted trivalent inactivated flu vaccine which as been shown to be more effective in the elderly at providing good protection against influenza.
The clinic for patients who are over 65 is Saturday 3rd November 2018. Please book at reception or online
If you are under 65 and at risk
If you are under 65 and at risk you will receive the quadrivalent vaccine. This offers better protection for the types of influenza that affects younger patients.
The flu clinic for patients who are under 65 is Saturday 3rd November 2018. Please book at reception or online
Children's Flu clinics — Haddenham Medical Centre will be holding a children's flu clinic on Saturday 17th November 2018 — eligible parents can have their flu jab at the same time. Please book at reception.
