It’s that time of year again!!!!
We have held two very successful flu clinics here at Rosmellyn. If you still haven’t had the vaccine and are entitled to one please speak to a Receptionist who will advise you about the dates of our “catch up” clinics.
Please remember: All of the normal at risk adult groups will continue to be invited. All 2-3 year olds will be invited by the surgery and will be administered via nasal spray. Older children in the at risk groups will also be vaccinated within the Practice. However children in the age group 4-9 years old will be invited to have their vaccinations administered in schools.
We also offer patients over the age of 65 a one off Pneumonia vaccination which protects patients from 22 strains of the virus. If you are entitled to this you will also receive a letter inviting to make an appointment.
We are offering vaccinations to people aged 70-73 years old to provide protection against shingles. The effectiveness of the vaccine declines with age and so it is not recommended for people aged 80 years or older. The catch-up campaign for those aged 78 and 79 will also start this month.
