To explain the delay
There has been a delay to the vaccine delivery of the Quadrivalent influenza vaccination (Split virion, inactivated for under 65 year olds). The world health organisation (WHO) took a decision to delay the selection of the strain by one month. This had an effect on the manufacturing timelines and will impact the vaccine time to market.
Carers are also eligible for the free flu vaccination (as the welfare of the person they care for may be at risk if the carer falls ill). If you have a carer who is registered at this practice, please let them know we can give them the vaccine free of charge as well.
If you decide not to have the vaccination please let us know so we can enter this onto your medical records.
