For patient’s aged 65 and over:
We have now received our final batch of flu vaccines for patients aged 65 and over. We will continue to call all those patients in this category, however, you are more than welcome to call and book an appointment at either Tavyside Health Centre or Lifton Branch Surgery.
For patients aged 18 to 65 who are ‘clinically at risk’
We are still waiting to receive more vaccines for patients who are eligible in this age cohort. Due to the national demand this year there has been a massive uptake, meaning we depleted our vaccines faster than we ever have before. We will of course inform patients when we receive more of these vaccines.
For patients aged two to 18:
We will contact you directly to invite your child in for their seasonal influenza vaccine. Children aged 2-3 years old we vaccinate or any child who is clinically at risk. For children in years reception and year one through to year seven are done via Virgin Care. If your child has yet to receive this vaccine or missed out, please contact 0300 247 0082
For those aged 50-65 and are NOT ‘clinically at risk’
We have received no further guidance for patients in this age category, therefore, will keep those who in this category informed as and when we know.
Thank you for your continued support during these difficult times.

FLU 2020/2021 CAMPAIGN
Flu vaccine invitations are starting to go out today by text and letter.
Due to how the clinics will be operating this year, you may find that you receive an invite, however your spouse, partner or other family member may not initially receive one. Please do not worry, they will be invited, however, they will be asked to attend at a different time. If you do get separate invites and you rely on each other to attend the Tavistock site, please contact us on receipt of your invite.
