PRE-BOOK YOUR FLU VACCINE
We are now booking flu appointments for Saturday 24th October for the over 65's and patients that are medically eligible. Please contact reception after 2pm to book an appointment. Please note these clinics are being held at Maldon Scout Hall (Brickhouse Farm), Poulton Close, Maldon, CM9 6NG and Plantation Hall, Colchester Road, Heybridge, CM9 4AL. This is not a walk in service, booked appointments only. Please wear a face covering when attending your appointment.
Please note that people in the 50-64-year old age group will not be vaccinated until November and December, providing there is sufficient vaccine, and no appointments will be offered for this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first. If you are 50-64 and you are in one of the other groups which is eligible for the flu vaccination, for example you have a health condition which puts you at risk from the flu, you will be invited earlier.
Please notify the surgery via email if you have received the flu vaccination in another setting i.e. place of work (excluding local pharmacies) so we can update your medical records accordingly. Thank you.
