Marazion Surgery will shortly be offering Seasonal Flu Vaccinations to our patients.  We are currently organising drop-in sessions for patients aged 65 years and over. 

Patients will receive a text message or letter, please ensure we have your mobile telephone number and permission to contact you via text.  Please share the following information with family and friends who are registered with us.

There are two vaccines available.  One is licensed for patients aged 65years and over.  The other is licensed for patients under the age of 65 years.  It is therefore important that you attend the correct clinic for your age. 

The drop-in sessions are being broken down into age brackets, to help manage the number of patients who arrive at the same time – this is to alleviate the traffic flow problems which occurred on Gwallon Lane last year!  If you are attending with a family or household member who is also over the age of 65years you may both attend the same time slot (one of the slots offered to you); you do not need to let us know about this. 

Please ensure that you are fit and well, do not attend if you have covid symptoms (new continuous cough, fever, loss of taste or smell).  Please wear a face mask/covering (unless you are exempt) and maintain social distancing when inside.  Please wear loose fitting clothing. 

As usual drop-in clinics will be purely for seasonal flu, we will not have capacity to undertake other routine work.  However, we may be able to offer you a vaccine if you attend a routine appointment at the surgery so please ask us at the time of your appointment.

FLU VACCINATION UPDATE 06.09.21:  Unfortunately we have been affected by the delay in flu vaccine delivery. FLU CLINIC ON SUNDAY 19TH SEPTEBER 2021 HAS BEEN CANCELLED. We have been very busy planning and organising these flu clinics and most of our patients aged 65 years and over have been allocated a time slot to come for their vaccination  Like many practices across the country, we have been advised by our flu supplier that due to unforeseen road freight challenges, there will be a delay to our scheduled delivery. The company are hoping the delay will be no longer than 1-2 weeks but are unable to confirm anything until closer to the time.  We will be contacting patients affected, so please bear with us. As we get updates, we will post here on our website and on FaceBook.  Please accept our apologies for the delay, but we hope that you understand that this is out of our control.

If you do NOT WISH TO HAVE A SEASONAL FLU VACCINE please let us know by replying to the text message, emailing us on enquiries.marazionsurgery@nhs.net or dropping us in a note.  Please try to avoid ringing the surgery.

 

Seasonal Flu Vaccines are in high demand this year – please do not delay in arranging to have your vaccination at Marazion Surgery

 

 

Marazion Surgery will shortly be offering Covid Vaccination Boosters to our patients.  

  

ARE YOU ELIGIBLE?

 

Patients must have had their first AND second doses (it does not matter where they were done).  

 

The booster cannot be given UNTIL AT LEAST 26 WEEKS (182 days) AFTER THE SECOND DOSE, the booster cannot be given before this.

 

Patients must be eligible for the booster, which is currently being given to patients over the age of 50 years, and those in at-risk group (the same priority groups as previously).  If you are under 50years and not in an at-risk group, you are not currently eligible. 

 

Patients who have tested positive for covid within the previous 28 days cannot have a booster.

 

HOW WILL I BE NOTIFIED THAT MY BOOSTER IS DUE?

 

Please ensure that we have your mobile telephone number and permission to send you text messages as this is most efficient and economical way to contact you. 

 

Patients will be contacted by text message, telephone or letter and invited to attend a clinic. 

 

WHEN TO ATTEND:

 

Patients who had their SECOND dose on or before 9th April are being invited to attend a drop-in clinic on Saturday 9th October.  You will be notified what time to attend.

 

If you had your second dose on 10th April or after, you cannot have a booster on 9th October!

If you attend but have not been called in, we will not be able to offer you a booster; please wait to be contacted. 

 

Please bring your Covid vaccination record card with you.

 

Please ensure that you are fit and well, do not attend if you have covid symptoms (new continuous cough, fever, loss of taste or smell).  Please wear a face mask/covering (unless you are exempt) and maintain social distancing when inside.  Please wear loose fitting clothing. 

Further clinics are planned, the next potentially being on 23rd October but this is yet to be confirmed.  Our website will be updated with this information in due course.
