Free Flu jabs will be available to specific patient groups at Haddenham Medical Centre at three clinic sessions in October. The first of these took place on Saturday 12th October. Further clinics are scheduled for Friday 25th October and on Saturday 26th October. The Friday session is now fully booked, but the clinic on Saturday has been extended and some more appointments have been made available. There is now no intention of holding another flu clinic in November, contrary to earlier suggestions. So, if you are in one of the 'at risk' groups (see below) please call the Medical Centre on 01844 293300 to check.
Those qualifying for free Flu immunisations are in the following three categories:
- Over 64 years of age
- All pregnant women
- Main carers for the elderly or disabled
In addition, those patients with the following conditions also qualify:
- Chronic Respiratory Disease
- Chronic Heart Disease
- Chronic Liver Disease
- Chronic Kidney Disease
- Chronic Neurological Disease
- Chronic Liver Disease
- Those with low immunity
If you would like to receive a Flu jab, but do not qualify for a free vaccination under the NHS, you may be able to obtain this privately through Vicary's, the pharmacy adjoining Haddenham Medical Centre for £10 but please telephone to check. Vicary's telephone is: 01844 291 960.
Alternatively, a number of supermarkets and high street pharmacy chains offer this service on a very cost-effective basis. The 'Flu Jab' leaflet provides full details — click on the PDF below the images to download this.
There is evidence to suggest that the middle-aged population can also derive benefits from immunisation against Flu — see here.
