Flu Clinics 2020-2021

Flu clinic update

The Sonning Common Health Centre team has been running flu clinics for eligible patients on Monday and Wednesday afternoons, 4-6pm, and some Saturday mornings since mid-September. Uptake for flu vaccinations has been high. If you are eligible for a flu jab and have not made an appointment yet please contact the Reception team at the health centre to make it.

If you are unable to attend your Flu clinic appointment or if you have already had the vaccination PLEASE remember to cancel. There are many who phone and can’t get an appointment or having long waits for a clinic. There were 24 patients that ‘Did not Attend’ on one occasion, so PLEASE think of others.

The following patients are eligible for a free flu vaccination and will have received a letter: Children aged 2 and 3 years, over 65 years, pregnant women, registered carers, care home residents, patients 4 years and above in a clinical risk group.

If you think you are eligible and have not had a letter please contact reception. Instructions and clinics for 50-65 year olds (not at risk) will be managed following national guidelines.

Children: primary school aged children will be offered a flu nasal spray vaccination via the school nurse teams. Parents are advised to contact their child’s primary school or the school nursing team if they haven’t received information about a flu vaccination for their child (primary school age).

Children aged 2 and 3 years are able to have a flu vaccination at the health centre. Please contact our reception team to make an appointment for your child if you haven’t done so yet.
