FLU VACCINE AGE 50-64
This winter, because of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the NHS has the largest flu vaccination programme ever with vaccination now being offered to those aged 50 to 64 years old.
It is important to prevent flu in this group, to protect these people from serious illness and reduce hospitalisations from flu. Also, research shows that if you get both flu and COVID-19 at the same time you may be more seriously ill. So, vaccination is especially important this winter.
If you are aged 50 to 64 years old (including those who turn 50 by 31 March 2021) you will be invited to attend your GP surgery for the vaccine.
Invitations have already been sent out, but if you have not yet had your Flu Vaccine and are aged 50 to 64 please contact the surgery. We will only be able to offer this vaccine up to 31 March 2021.
Coronavirus Vaccine Update 11th December 2020
Weymouth and Portland are
pleased to be receiving some coronavirus vaccine shortly.
Government guidance has advised which patients should be invited, which is the over 80’s.
As you may be aware from the media this first supply of vaccine is very limited.
We have had to prioritise
invites, again following Government guidance.
All those invited for this first wave of vaccines will receive a letter.
It may be that not all household members or carers, who are also over 80, are able to be invited this time.
As soon as further vaccines are received we will be able to invite more patients. We do not know for certain when this will be but this is likely to be over the next few weeks.
Thank you for your understanding.
