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. 

About us

The original site at Silverdale Surgery is the administrative centre and is a short walk from the railway station. In 1997, due to need for more space to accommodate our growing role in health care and medical education, the Avenue Surgery was built in a central location in the heart of the town.

Both surgeries work together as a single unit. By rotating locations during the week, doctors are available to consult at both sites. The Avenue has a large car park and is fully compliant with current disabled access requirements.

Our continuing aim is to provide the best healthcare possible. Healthcare is always a partnership between patient and doctor. Whilst we will always try our best, we need your help to do this. At times when we are very busy, such as during an emergency or an influenza outbreak, we ask you to please try and be understanding.
