Patient update regarding Flu clinics Posted on 17 Sep 2020

 

Flu vaccination from your GP is different this year

 

2020 has been a very different year and we have all had to make changes to the way we live. As we come into Autumn it is time to think about the dangers of Flu as well as COVID-19.

 

Here is some general guidance to assist you:

  • Vaccines will be by appointment only. 
  • Clinic appointments are available at both our sites in Brecon & Sennybridge. Eligible patients are to call 01874 622121 to book an appointment.
 

There will be NO DROP-IN CLINICS this year.

 

 

 

    • Please attend at the time given; it is essential you do not arrive early or late.

 

    • Please wear appropriate clothing so that the vaccine can be given in your upper arm easily.

 

    • It is essential that you wear a 3-layer face covering to attend your appointment.

 

    • Please do not attend if you or a close contact has symptoms or have had recent contact with a suspected/confirmed case of COVID-19.

 

    • Please come alone unless you need the support of a carer.

 

  • You may be expected to stand in a queue for a short time, which could be outside of the premise. If you are not able to do so please let the practice know when you book your appointment.
  • Our Medication Collection window will be CLOSED on the following afternoon dates from 12:30:
    Tuesday October 6th 
    Wednesday October 14th
    Tuesday October 20th

    • Please do not bring unnecessary bags etc.

 

    • Understand the toilet facilities will not be available.

 

    • Understand the clinics are for flu only, and please don’t ask for other advice during your appointment.

 

    • Primary School children will be vaccinated in school programme as normal and will be contacted by the school or school nurse.

 

    • Entrance and exits may be different from usual, and will be clearly marked and we will have staff members on hand to help direct you.
