FLU Vaccinations 2020/21

Our vaccinations will be arriving after the 18th September and clinics will start the following week. We are not booking appointments until they arrive. Due to keeping everyone safe by social distancing the clinics will be very different this year and it will take us longer to get those aged 65 and above as well as patients in an at risk group vaccinated. Please come at the time specified and dress appropriately so that the clinicians have easy access to your arm.

Please note that, if you are aged between 50 and 64 and not in a clinical at risk group, the earliest you will be offered a flu vaccination is November, providing there is sufficient vaccine. No appointments will be offered for people in this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first. If you are aged 50 to 64 and are in a clinical ‘at risk’ group 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. 

Travel Health


If you are possibly planning or have booked a trip abroad and are seeking travel health advice, Silverdale Practice offers a travel clinic service with one of our travel health specialist nurses.

SilverdaleWe would first ask you complete a travel risk assessment form so we can assess your risk, the recommended vaccines, any necessary malaria tablets (if you’re travelling to a malarious region) and the advice most appropriate for your needs. Once you have completed and returned this form to the practice, we will contact you to make an appointment with one of our nurses.

We regret that no traveller will be seen without a completed risk assessment form. Under the services a GP provides for travel, there is an obligation to give vaccines to provide, free of charge protection against hepatitis A, typhoid and tetanus, polio and diphtheria and travel advice. However if there is not enough time before you travel or you require to be seen at specific times or days of the week then you may want to investigate private travel clinics in Sussex.

Silverdale practice are pleased to be able to offer a more specialist service with a greater choice of vaccines you may require, for example rabies or yellow fever which you would otherwise have to travel to a private travel clinic for. These vaccines are not free on the NHS. At this present time payment can only be made by cheque or cash.

Hepatitis B£50 per Injection
Japanese B encephalitis£99 per Injection
Meninggitis ACWY£85 per Injection
Rabies£80 per Injection
Tick Borne encephalitis£64 per Injection
Yellow Fever£80 per Injection
