Flu Clinics 2020


The Practice is please to announce the dates for our seasonal flu clinics for the 2020/21 season.

In light of the additional challenges brought along by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Practice has had to adjust and change the way we offer the flu vaccine this year.

In order to ensure the safety of all our patients and staff members, it is vital that we follow governmental guidelines on social distancing and infection control. For all clinics this year we will be:

  • Asking all patients to pre-book their slot for their preferred clinic and arrive as close to their appointment time as possible to avoid crowding. We will not be able to vaccinate any patient who attends without an appointment.
  • Asking that patients attend alone where possible to reduce unnecessary footfall.
  • Asking that patients wear a face covering where possible whilst on Practice premises for the safety of those most at risk.
  • Implementing a social distancing queuing system to help better control the flow of patients through the clinic. Unfortunately this will mean there will be no parking facilities at any of our clinics held at Tramways.

If you wish to check your eligibility for the flu vaccine this year, please take a look at the information provided at www.nhs.uk/conditions/vaccinations/flu-influenza-vaccine/


Adults Over-65 and At-risk Patients (18+)

Thank you to all those that have attended one of our flu clinics this year and helping them to run smoothly.

We have now received additional vaccine supplies and are please to announce that we will be able to run a further clinic in November. These will be run in the same manner and we ask that patients follow the same guidance mentioned above.

Saturday 21st November 2020 - 9:00am until 11:00pm - Middlewood Medical Centre

This clinic is by appointment only so please contact the Practice on 0114 234 5338 to book a slot now.


Adults between 50 and 65 years old

The government recently announced that this year the scope of the flu vaccine has been increased to include patients who are between 50 and 65 years old due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Practice has been advised that these patients will only be offered the vaccine subject to supply and after at-risk groups have been offered the vaccine. Unfortunately we are unable to vaccinate this group during the clinics above but further information on additional clinics will be available shortly.


Children's Flu Vaccines 2020

We have now received additional vaccine supplies and are please to announce that we will be able to run a further clinic in November. These will be run in the same manner and we ask that patients follow the same guidance mentioned above.

Saturday 21st November 2020 - 11:00am until 12:00pm - Middlewood Medical Centre

You can book by calling our Reception team on 0114 234 5338. (We would recommend calling late morning to avoid times when the phone lines are busiest). Please do not attend in person to book as this may put you at risk and we will be unable to take requests in person.

Please be aware that no parking will be available at our Tramways clinics due to the use of the car park for the queuing system. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
