We would like to apologise to everyone who was inconvenienced by or distressed by our recent flu days. There has been a national problem with supply of flu jabs this year. In previous years we have had all of our flu jabs delivered by mid-October and our flu clinics have always run very efficiently. This year however, a late decision at the Department of Health meant that the vaccination programme was changed, with different vaccinations for those who are under 65. This has meant that despite ordering our usual number of vaccines at the usual time, the manufacturer has only been able to supply the over 65’s vaccine in 3 phased deliveries in September, October and November. This has been the case nationally, as you may have heard on the news, and has been completely out of our control.
We understand that this has been very difficult for patients and their families, and we are very sorry about this.
We hope that our third flu afternoon on Wednesday 21st November from 3pm -6pm will run more smoothly as we have been promised a full quota of vaccines by then.
