Sloane Street Surgery recommends immunisation against seasonal Influenza for all patients over six months old, as this can affect even normally healthy people. A Flu vaccine reduces your risk of becoming ill with seasonal Influenza.
Whilst the Flu vaccine is good protection against seasonal Influenza, it does not guarantee that you will not become ill with the flu. The Flu vaccine can only match the current strain of the virus affecting the community, and therefore if the circulating Flu in your area differs then it can decrease the effectiveness. It is still however a good idea to have this as a measure to improve your immunity.
This is available as an injection or a nasal vaccine (recommended for children). Please book an appointment on 0207 245 9333 or by emailing the Secretary of your registered Doctor (contact details on our contact page).
The surgery is open and we are consulting with our patients on all medical matters. Appointments are now available for either video/telephone consultations or consultations face-to-face, and all of these can be booked online (click “BOOK NOW”) or by telephone.
IMPORTANT: the surgery has strict social distancing and infection control procedures in place. On attending the surgery you will be required to bring a face mask with you to wear in the waiting area. Hand sanitiser will be provided to all patients. We ask that you also follow social distancing protocol and keep two metres distance between yourself and others where possible whilst in the surgery and to follow the advice as per our waiting room signs. Family groups attending should seek advice from their GP before attending such that a plan can be put in place that adheres to current social distancing measures.
Thank you for your co-operation in ensuring that we can keep the practice safe for everyone.
