There is currently no Flu vaccine available for the new cohort of patients aged 50 - 64 with no underlying medical condition, vaccination for this group of patients will not commence until mid November

Flu Clinics will be a different this year, due to COVID-19. Please remember:

  • Do not attend if you are unwell, especially if you have a new continuous cough, a fever or anosmia (loss of taste/smell).
  • Maintain social distancing of 2m as per guidelines for healthcare.
  • Patients of the same household that fit into the same category (over 65 years) can attend and queue together.
  • Wear a mask or face covering, unless you have an exemption.
  • Wear loose fitting clothing.
  • Toilet facilities will be closed, please go before you attend!
  • The car park may be busy, please drive in slowly. If you live locally you may wish to walk, if possible. You may also park in the free public car park nearby.
  • No other services will be offered during the clinics (unless there is a threat to life).
  • There will be further clinics scheduled in due course.

Travel Vaccinations

Are you planning a holiday abroad?

 

If you are travelling, we ask that you check with your travel agent or look on an appropriate website (see below) to find out what travel vaccinations you will require.  If you require vaccination for Typhoid, Hepatitis A, Tetanus, Polio, Diptheria or Cholera, you may make an appointment with one of our Practice nurses. 

These vaccines have to be ordered. So your appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.

For vaccination information we suggest:

 NaTHNaC (travelhealthpro.org.uk)  or  masta-travel-health.com

For those vaccinations not provided free on the NHS, patients can visit Boots (Hayle and Truro branches) or Drury’s Pharmacy in Newquay.
