Flu Notification for Patients
Flu Clinics for patients OVER 65 and in the AT RISK GROUP (aged 18-65)
We have flu clinics for patients over 65 and for adults aged 18-65 who are in
the at risk group (patients with an underlying health condition
e.g. COPD/asthma/diabetes etc and pregnant women) taking place on:
Wednesday 14 October 2020 and Thursday 15 October 2020
Folkestone Road Surgery: 8:30am - 11:30am
This is a walk-in clinic and does not need to be booked.
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 are sufficient vaccines. 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.

Collection of Sick Notes / Blood Forms etc
Please note that collection of any documentation from the surgery needs to be
