Autumn Vaccinations

Flu vaccination appointments in September are now available to book online or via the reception team. Clinics will be held from the week commencing 19th September at The Medical Centre Gibson Court by our Practice Nursing Team.

Please ensure you book into the correct appointment slot for your age (over or under 65) as there are 2 different vaccines. All patients will receive either a text message or letter within the next couple of weeks if they are eligible. Pregnant women will be offered the vaccine verbally by their midwife but can book themselves online or over the phone before then.

Patients aged 50+ who are not in an at risk group will be eligible for vaccination from the week commencing 15th October in line with advice from NHS England. These patients will receive a letter/text message later in October.

COVID Autumn Booster Vaccinations will also be available from September. More information about how patients will be invited will be available soon. These will be done via the vaccination hubs in South Tyneside.

Thank you
