Seasonal Influenza Vaccination Programme 2018/19

This year we are holding a FLU OPEN DAY on Saturday 20th October 2018 for all patients UNDER 65 in a Clinical Risk Group, Pregnant Women or Pre School Children (born between 02.07.14 - 01.09.16)

If you are eligible to receive the vaccine you can attend between 9am - 12noon or 12.30pm - 2pm

Clinical Risk Groups are as follows;

  • Chronic Respiratory Disease (eg COPD, Asthma that requires the use of inhalers)
  • Chronic Heart Disease
  • Chronic Kidney Disease
  • Chronic Liver Disease
  • Chronic Neurological Disease (eg Stroke)
  • Diabetes
  • Immunosuppression
  • Asplenia or dysfunction of the spleen

This Flu Season the Public Health Agency have recommended different vaccines for those aged 65+ compared to those aged under 65.

Supply of this vaccine however is limited and supply to surgeries will be staggered over the coming months.

Due to these delivery restrictions Public Health Agency have stated that those aged 75+ should be prioritised to receive this vaccine first as supply allows.

The 65-74 age group will be invited when further flu vaccines become available.

This should be before the end of November.

Important info*

On the 23rd January 2018 we upgraded our computer system, and expect significant delays over the next couple of weeks while the new system beds in. 

Repeat Prescriptionsblue_yellow_pills

We offer a number of ways for patients on long-term medication to order a repeat prescription:

  • By telephone - to 028 9753 2217 between 10:00 - 12:00.
  • Online - follow the link at the top of this page to complete a simple one-off registration. After you register, you need to check your email to "activate" your registration. After logging in for the first time, you need to specify your repeat medications only the first time - after this the system will remember each time. Please note, the system doesn't link to the EMIS system we use in surgery, so if your medications/doses have changed, you need to change them the next time you order tablets.
