NHS England has announced plans for the delivery of this year’s autumn and winter flu and Covid-19 programme.
All eligible people can now book their Covid-19 and flu vaccinations at Latham House Medical Practice.
How to book your vaccinations
We are booking flu vaccinations for eligible patients now at our winter clinics.
We have available clinics on:
– Saturday 14th October 2023
Please get in touch to book your vaccinations at the Practice by contacting us at:
- Request an appointment online via Patient Triage by AccuRx or on the NHS App.
- Email us at [email protected]
- Call us 01664 503000
- Pop in and speak to a member of the team
Where possible and appropriate, we will also be offering the flu vaccination as part of existing health monitoring appointments.
All eligible patients can book their Covid-19 vaccine via the National Booking Service. Latham House Medical Practice will be listed as a venue.
The NBS will be regularly updated with appointments as they become available so, please remember to check back regularly if you aren’t able to find an appointment at a suitable time or location.
A mobile vaccination service will also be visiting local communities so people can get their vaccinations without making an appointment. For a full list of upcoming mobile vaccination service clinics can be found here https://leicesterleicestershireandrutland.icb.nhs.uk/covid-19-and-flu-mobile-vaccination-unit/.
Why should I get vaccinated?
The Covid-19 and flu vaccination programme provides vital protection to those eligible and their families over winter, keeping people from developing serious illnesses, and helping to minimise hospitalisations during busy winter months.
The protection offered by each dose of the Covid-19 and flu vaccine reduces over time and therefore it is very important that eligible people take up the offer of the next seasonal dose, in order to receive maximum protection.
If you think you have the flu, it’s best to care for yourself at home to prevent the further spread of germs. Get plenty of rest, keep warm, drink plenty of water, and take paracetamol or ibuprofen if you have a high temperature or any aches and pains. If you need advice, you can call NHS 111 for free at any time, day or night.
To reduce the risk of spreading flu, use tissues to trap germs when you cough or sneeze, wash your hands often with warm water and soap, and bin used tissues as quickly as possible.
