Harrow East PCN Flu Drop In Clinics

- Advertisement -

We are pleased to announce that this year Harrow East Primary Care Network (PCN) will be holding flu drop in clinics at Canons High School for patients registered with any of our three practices: Honeypot Medical Centre, Bacon Lane Surgery and Mollison Way Surgery.

While all three practices will still continue to offer flujabs in their own practices, in addition this year, we will be offering flujabs across several weekends in Canons High School. There will be both walk in access, for those who can arrive on foot and drive through access for those unable to walk or stand for their vaccine.

Those eligible to attend will be all patients aged over 65, or patients under 65 who are in an ‘at risk’ category– see next page for details.

While COVID-19 has had an impact and put limitations on all our lives, it is particularly important, now more than ever, that all patients in the eligible groups have their routine flu vaccine. Vaccines protect against serious and potentially deadly illnesses and stop outbreaks in the community. Flu vaccines are especially important to protect people at risk as we head towards winter.

Please note that we have been instructed by NHS England that people in the 50-64 year old age group will not be vaccinated until November and December, providing there are sufficient vaccines and no vaccinations will be offered for this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first.

When will the flu drop in clinics be held?

Saturday 12th September – 10am to 4pm – patient 65 and over

 Saturday 19th September – 10am to 4pm – all eligible patients (see next page)
