Station House Surgery Flu Vaccinations 2020
Support general practice and have your flu vaccine safely with us this year.
For your safety, due to COVID-19, we have changed the way you will get your flu vaccine this year. Please read all the following information carefully to ensure you get your vaccine if you are eligible.
Saturday 19th September – Over 65s
Saturday 3rd October – All eligible as below
More info can be found below.
Future clinics may be announced - We advise you check our website or Facebook page regularly as information may be updated.
We are using 15 minute time slots to decide when you should arrive to get your flu jab.
Please arrive at the time allocated when you book. It’s vital you stick to your time slot or you may not be seen. Please try not to arrive earlier than your allocated time – you will be turned away and asked to come back later.
Please attend on your own if possible. Parking on site is limited, please consider this when planning you journey.
We are operating a one way system through the building.
Most people (that can use the stairs) will be asked to go to the main entrance and will leave via an exit near the station platform.
To be eligible for this round of flu vaccines you must:
Be aged 65+ (by 31/03/21)
Be in the at-risk categories
- If you have a chronic respiratory disease
- If you have chronic heart disease
- If you have chronic renal disease
- If you are diabetic
- If you have a weak immune system
- If you live in a long-stay residential or nursing home
- If you have a chronic liver disease

Please Note If you are not in one of these categories, you will be turned away. The 50-64 age bracket without any risk as above will NOT be seen at present. Please await further details as we get them.
During our flu clinics we ask that you please:
- Do not attend if you have any symptom of COVID-19 (i.e. a high temperature, a new, continuous cough or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste)
- Wear loose clothing or keep one arm uncovered for ease of vaccination
- Wear a face covering (unless you are exempt)
- Social distance from others
- Use the floor markers – these will help with social distancing
