Flu Vaccination 50 - 64-Year Old Age Group - Covid
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 note Patients over the age of 65 will be invited in the first instance and priority will be given to those with additional risk factors.
Please wear a face covering when entering the surgery. This does not need to be a medical grade mask. Your assistance in helping keep patients and staff safe is appreciated.

We are unfortunately NOT in a position to provide individual risk assessments or letters for patients who feel that they should be exempt from wearing a face make. For more information about exemption please view the Cleveland Local Medical guidance Exemption guidance
