SUTTON VALENCE GROUP PRACTICE


As you are all probably aware, this year will be a very challenging year for delivering the flu vaccine programme.  The first of our flu clinics will be held this year in the village hall.  This will enable us to process more patients safely, maintaining social distancing.  We do not have the supplies to vaccinate you if you are not entitled.  We ask that you all follow these instructions:



  • 26 September 2020 Clinic for 65 and over patients only

  • 17 October 2020     Clinic for 65 and over and those in a clinical at risk group

  • Please be aware, this is an open plan venue, not private consulting rooms

  • Do not attend if you, or any members of your household, have symptoms of coronavirus, or if you have been told to isolate

  • Book your appointment.  Do not turn up without an appointment.  You will NOT be seen.

  • Do not arrive early or late for your appointment time.  We have allocated a strict number of patients per period to ensure that people are queuing for the minimum time and social distancing is maintained

  • Please wear a face covering.  We will take your temperature on arrival, and supply hand gel

  • Please follow the instructions for queuing.  The queue will be controlled to ensure social distancing.  If you are in a wheelchair or have very limited mobility, please make yourself known to the queue marshall, who will be wearing a luminous yellow jacket.  You will then be fast tracked

  • If it is raining on the day, please come prepared with an umbrella as the queue will be outside for a short period of time

  • There will be no chairs available to sit while waiting and you will not be able to sit whilst having the vaccination (for infection control).  If you think you will struggle with this, please speak to the queue marshall on arrival so we can assist you

  • Wear a short sleeved top under your outer garment for ease of exposing your upper arm

  • Please heed the instructions of the staff who are supervising the patient flow - they are there for your safety

  • If you cannot attend your appointment, please call us to rearrange

  • At this moment we are not in a position to vaccinate 50-64 year olds.  We are awaiting guidance and will advertise as soon as we have further information
