Influenza Vaccination Program October 2018 to March 2019 - Important changes!
The Practice is currently in the process of planning the seasonal flu campaign. The Department of Health have implemented some changes to the vaccination program which has had a direct effect on how the practice can organise clinics. The Chief Medical Officer has introduced 3 different vaccines depending on your age. Those aged between 2 to 17, 18 to 64 and 65 +.
Vaccines for those aged 65+ are restricted to all Practices and will be delivered in 3 staggered deliveries between October and the end of November 2018.
As a result the Department of Health have asked all GP Practices to prioritise those aged 75+. Those aged between 65 & 74 will still be offered the vaccine however it may be later than the practice have offered in previous years.
Preschool Children & those considered 'At Risk' under the age of 65 will be invited for vaccination in the normal way.
All patients who are eligible for the vaccination will be invited for vaccination. We would kindly ask that you await your invitation and do not contact the practice regarding your vaccination as this caused unnecessary demands on our telephone system. If you have not received an invitation by December please contact us at this stage.
We sincerely thank you for your co-operation at this time.
