We now have a stock of flu vaccine for patients aged 50-64 years old who were not previously eligible.
We have a clinic at Bingham Medical Centre, open to all our patients regardless of which surgery they are registered at, on Sat 12th December, as well as clinics during the week commencing 14th December at all three of our surgeries.
Please call your surgery on 0115 896 9991 in order to book an appointment.
The vaccine you will be receiving in these clinics is called Flublok. Flublok does not have a UK marketing authorisation but has been given authorisation for temporary supply by the UK Department of Health and Social Care and the Medicines & Healthcare products Regulatory Agency for immunisation against influenza. Flublok is licensed for use in the USA by the Food and Drug Administration.
As with any new medicine in the UK this product will be closely monitored to allow quick identification of new safety information. You can help by reporting side effects you may get. You can report side effects directly via the national reporting system (see details below)
