Flu Vaccinations: A message from the Charlbury Medical Centre

I've been asked by the Charlbury Medical Centre to let people who are due to have a flu jab this month know what the procedure will be, as it is different from previous years due to the need to protect everyone from Covid. This message is for anyone who has received a letter inviting them to come and get their jab on September 29th or 30th.  If you have not received a letter asking you to come on these dates please do not come along expecting to get a vaccination as you will not be given one.

The flu jabs will be administered by the staff of the medical centre at the new Football Club premises behind the Community Centre.  There will be volunteer stewards outside the building to direct you.  Please make sure that you bring your letter with you and wear a mask as you will not be allowed in without these.  The jab will be given at the top of your arm, so please make sure that you are wearing sleeves that can be rolled right up. It will save a lot of time if you can do that without having to take your top off.

If you know someone over 65 who has had one of these letters but who may not have read this message, please can you pass this information on to them.

The Medical Centre would like to thank the Football Club for allowing their new building to be used for this purpose, which will ensure that people are kept as safe as possible.
