FLU CLINICS FOR CHILDREN
We now have flu clinic appointments available for eligible children. We are only vaccinating healthy 2, 3 and 4 year olds and patients under the age of 18 in an 'at risk' category.
Children must attend their appointment with ONE parent/guardian.
All children in primary school and the first year of secondary school will be offered the flu vaccination at school.
2020 FLU VACCINATION CLINICS
The Practice will be commencing flu vaccination clinics in September. Due to the COVID 19 pandemic we have had to make alternations to how are clinics are run and booked.
Please read the information sheet linked below for details of the changes we have made, how to book an appointment and the dates/times of our dedicated flu clinics this year.

NOTICE REGARDING COVID ANTIBODY TESTING - Friday 5th June 2020
The practice is NOT presently in a position to offer the recently announced Covid antibody test.
The sensitivity of antibody tests is not yet clear: there are clear examples of people who were confirmed (through PCR testing) to have had Covid-19, but in whom the antibody tests remain negative.
It remains unknown if having antibodies for Covid19 will prevent reinfection.
It remains unknown if having antibodies prevents the ability to pass on the virus to others.
The quality and duration of immunity is not yet clear.
By the time the test becomes positive, the patient may no longer be infectious, so the test has little or no value in contact tracing and isolation.
