Flu vaccinations are early this year.

I noticed my GP surgery is beginning the flu vaccinations early this year, the organisation it is more complicated because instead of large group bookings they can only book a small number of people at a time.

My GP surgery is going to be using an open marquee with a one way system and the vaccinating starts on September 12th for over 65s to begin with.

It should get some of us safely vaccinated if there is a sudden surge of C19 with the return for many to school and work.

Re: Flu vaccinations are early this year.

My surgery text me two or three weeks ago offering Flu and also Shingles vaccs, Meg.
I didn't know there was a start date though, it just said to book an appointment.

Gosh that was efficient Mups I only found out by accident when being given the option to 'press one to book a flu vaccination' when I rang the surgery about something else

I will have to ring our surgery. They text me every year despite not having my number.

Re: Flu vaccinations are early this year.

I'm at the doctor's tomorrow for some tests. No doubt they'll stick a needle in my arm while I'm not looking like they did last year.
