Flu Season 2021 -2022

From September 2021, we will be offering our popular drive-through Flu clinics.

We will offer separate sessions for over 65s and under 65s. If you are 65 on or before 31st March 2022, you will be eligible for the over 65 vaccination.

We plan to run our drive through flu clinics on Saturdays in September and early October, to allow us to then administer the COVID Booster vaccinations at Colden Common Surgery.

(update 20th Sept) Please note the following about flu vaccinations

1. All those patients who had appointments booked on 18th September, we will be getting in touch to re-book these in the next few days

2. All appointments booked for the 25th September are still going ahead as planned.

3. All appointments booked on 2nd October are still going ahead as planned.

4. For patients still waiting to book an appointment, we will be able to update you at the end of the week


How to access your COVID-19 vaccination status

Through the NHS App

You can access your COVID-19 vaccination status through the free NHS App.

Proof of your COVID-19 vaccination status will be shown within the NHS App.

We recommend that you register with the app before booking international travel.

By calling 119

If you do not have access to a smartphone and know that the country you are travelling to requires COVID-19 vaccination status, you can call the NHS helpline on 119 and ask for a letter to be posted to you. This must be at least 5 working days after you’ve completed your course of the vaccine. We expect the letter to take up to 5 working days to reach you.

The letter will be sent automatically to the address registered with your GP. The 119 call handler you speak to will not be able to see your address to check this with you. If you’ve recently moved house, make sure you’ve given your new address to your GP practice before calling 119.

Do not contact your GP surgery about your COVID-19 vaccination status. GPs cannot provide letters showing your COVID-19 vaccination status.
