Staff at Haddenham Medical Centre are pleased to announce that they have now received their first batch of children's vaccines. These are sprayed up the nose, rather than administered by injection.
They are available for children aged two, three and four years (on 31st August 2016) and for children aged 2 to 17 years with long-term health conditions.
Children in school years one, two and three will receive their vaccination in school.
Haddenham Medical Centre has arranged for children's flu vaccine clinics at the following times and dates:
- Saturday 1st October — from 8am until 11.30am
- Tuesday 18th October — from 3pm to 4.15pm.
Please ring reception to book an appointment: 01844 293300
Unfortunately, NHS England will only allow GP Practices to order the children's vaccines in small batches. They also do not allow GPs to order more until they have used the ones initially provided.
The Medical Centre will be providing more clinics later but staff cannot plan these until they know when their next batch of vaccines will be delivered.
