Flu/COVID vaccination clinics 2022/23

Our first flu/COVID vaccination clinics will be held in October 2022. If you are eligible, you will be offered a flu vaccination and we will aim to also offer a COVID Autumn booster (subject to delivery from suppliers) in the same appointment.

UPDATE 28/09/2022: We now have further availability for patients aged 65+ and patients under 65 in clinical ‘at risk’ group. Please use your text booking link to arrange an appointment. If you do not have a text link, please call us for assistance. Children aged 2, 3, and 17 years have also been invited, please call to book. All school aged children aged 4-16 years are being vaccinated at school.

If you have not received an invite but believe you are eligible for an NHS flu/COVID vaccine, please contact us here: Ask the Practice a Question | The Downland Practice.

Scam reports: The police and NHS have received reports of a scam involving patients being offered flu/covid vaccinations in exchange for a fee and/or bank details by phone, text, email, or on the doorstep of their homes. If you have been contacted or visited and are unsure if it’s from the surgery, please call us directly for advice.

The NHS will never:

  • Ask you for your bank account or bank card details
  • Ask you for your PIN number or banking password
  • Arrive unannounced at your home to administer your flu/covid vaccine
