Dear PPG member
You are probably aware that GP practices across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland are now beginning to hold their flu clinics for patients to get their vaccinations if they are in eligible groups.
We have put together a toolkit of articles and resources that you can access at https://www.westleicestershireccg.nhs.uk/your-health-and-services/flu-safe to help inform your patients about the flu vaccination campaign this year and for them to check if they are eligible for a free flu vaccine. This will continue to be updated as further materials become available.
Please could we ask that you use the information on this page in your newsletters and websites to let your patients know about the flu vaccine this year. Please link in with your GP practice for specific details of how they are running their flu clinics this year.
We have also collated all the national resources that have been made available to date at https://www.westleicestershireccg.nhs.uk/your-ccg/publications/your-health-and-services/flu for you to use including easy read versions and information in other languages. Further resources will be added shortly when the national campaign materials are available.
We hope this is helpful. Please let us know if you have any questions.
