Stansted Surgery

The plan for children aged 18 and under

 

The surgery will vaccinate all "at risk" children, and also all children aged 2 or 3 on 31.8.2020. We aim to write to this group shortly.

 

All school children in Reception class, Years 1,2,3,4,5,6,and 7 will be immunsed at school

 

Every one aged over 65 - to be vaccinated by the surgery at our Saturday clinics

 

Those at risk aged 18-64 - to be vaccinated by the surgery at our Saturday clinics

 

The new cohort - those aged over 50 - 64 not in an "at risk" group - we are still waiting for guidance from NHS England. We hear on the grapevine that the required announcements are not being made until Nov 2020.

Our plans for Flu 2020


Delivering the flu campaign this year will significantly impact our workload, and we ask for patient’s continued support to get this done as safely as possible.

  1. All those patients who were advised to shield during the pandemic will be vaccinated first. The nursing team will run a separate clinic for these patients on Wednesday 23 September 2020, and we will be contacting this group directly with instructions. 
  2. We will be using the 3 Saturday clinics (26 September, 3 October and 17 October) to vaccinate the bulk of our “at risk group”, i.e. all those aged 65 and over, and those with an ongoing chronic condition aged 18 to 64 - so those who are usually invited annually for a flu vaccination. Patients will be invited in a staggered way, by letters of the alphabet. Entry will be on a one-in-one-out basis, and all queueing will be outside the surgery, with social distancing in place. We have lots of clinicians and support staff to help, and we hope that these clinics will run quickly and efficiently. You do not need to book an appointment if you are able to attend in your allocated timeframe.

  1. All children UNDER THE AGE OF 18 will be vaccinated on a different day – and we will be in touch with those parents and/or guardians once we know when the childhood flu vaccination will be available to us.
  2. Patients who are housebound should contact the surgery if they wish to have a flu jab this year. We will arrange a date/dates for home visits once we have an idea of the number of patients requiring a home visit.
  3. The new cohort announced this year will be done during November and December 2020 – but we will endeavour to get this done as soon as we are advised how to source the additional vaccination required. This cohort includes healthy patients aged 50 to 64, who did not qualify for a flu jab in the past, as well as the household members of shielding patients. Currently, this cohort has not been confirmed by NHS England – we await further guidance

All patients aged 65 and over qualify for a flu jab
