GP Practice Flu Clinics


Sidney House & The Laurels surgeries sincerely apologise to our Patients for any inconvenience that may have been caused when some Flu Clinics had to be cancelled at short notice.  
Practice had taken delivery of sufficient vaccines to support the advertised clinics but unfortunately due to an unexpected technical failure the first delivery of vaccines had to be destroyed for Patient safety reasons.  The Practice then experienced a delay in obtaining some replacement vaccines (which were held in reserve by the suppliers) before we could recommence the flu campaign.   Whilst the Practice have continued to take the remaining staged deliveries to our Surgery there is no certainty that we will be able to get enough vaccines to replace those that had to be destroyed.
Due to a national shortage of this year’s vaccines (particularly the vaccine appropriate for the over 65’s) most local Surgeries and Pharmacy’s are struggling to meet Patient demand.   
Sidney House & The Laurels surgeries are working closing with the Pharmaceutical suppliers to try to get further supplies of flu vaccine but this may prove extremely difficult as the suppliers are stating that they will not be making additional vaccines.
We will up-date our website and bulk text (as appropriate) as and when we have more information. Thank you for your patience.
