You will no doubt have heard in the media this morning, that those age 50-64 will be able to receive a flu vaccine from 1/12/20. General practices are learning this information at the same time as you via the same sources as you. Practices are doing all they can to prepare and source vaccines, they will be in contact with patients as soon as they are able. In the meantime please do not contact your surgery about flu vaccines if you are in this group until you are asked to do so. We are as frustrated as our patients and hope to have further direction from NHS England soon.
