Covid -19 Vaccinations

Dear Patient

 To keep you as informed as possible, we will update these messages frequently as we become aware of more information from NHS England:

  • We are approximately halfway through vaccinating our 80 year olds + patients as vaccine supplies become more readily available and we are busily planning for our next age group.  
  • Our vaccination clinics will be held at Farnham Centre for Health on Hale Road.
  • We have to follow strict government guidelines which tell us which group of patients to vaccinate first, we have no influence on this
  • We will contact you when you its is time for you to book a vaccine appointment.
  • It is essential, if you are given a vaccine, that you return for the second part of the vaccination when you are invited again.
  • Please do not telephone us to ask when you are going to get a Covid Vaccine. We will contact you individually as and when it is time for you to book your vaccine appointment. We will keep our website updated with as much information as we can.
  • We have many patients to vaccinate so we ask for your patience as we work through this vaccination programme which will last well into 2021.

Thank you for your patience

Dr Robert Price Holly Tree Surgery


Flu Clinic's 2020

Flu vaccination update – 50-64 year olds

Following the announcement this morning (20 Nov) we are awaiting further updates around flu vaccine supplies and delivery dates. This will allow adults over the age of 50 to get their free flu vaccine in the next phase of this year's expanded flu vaccination programme, starting from 1 December. As soon as we have more information about how to book appointments for these clinics for 50-64 year olds, we will be in touch with this patient group - by text and or email. Further updates will also be shared on our website.  


We have been exploring options on how best to deliver this seasons flu vaccinations to our patients with the on-going threat of Covid-19.

We have had to factor in social disatancing whilst ensuring we keep both patients and staff safe.  It is taking us much longer to process patients through our clinics.

Flu vaccinations will be by appointment only, booked in advance and you will be notified by text, email or by telephone when the appointments beocme available.

Please only call reception to book a Flu vaccination if you have received a text, e-mail or telephone message inviting you to do so.

We will be inviting you in age groups to book your appointment.

We are unable to deal with general Flu enquiries over the phone.

Please wait for your invitation. 

Flu vaccinations will be administered as follows:

  1. Covid High Risk Patients 
  2. Then our most senior patients and others in decreasing order of age.

Due to the vast numbers of patients needing the vaccine we kindly request you not to telephone the surgery, we will contact you when we reach your age group.

Please note that, if you are aged between 50 and 64 and not in a clinical "at risk group", the earliest you will be offered a flu vaccination is likely to be mid December. We will contact you by text / email when vaccines have arrived and our clinics have been established. 

No appointments will be offered to people in this age grup until then.  This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first.  If you are 50 to 64 and are in a clinical "at risk group" which is eligible for the flu vaccination, for exmaple you have a health condition wihch puts you ar risk from the flu, you will be invited earlier.

Please note that some of our Flu Clinics will be held at Farnham Hospital and run on our behalf by Farnham Intergrated Care Services (FICS) from their rooms within the hospital.



Attending a Flu Clinic

The practice will be under significant pressure this year to provide vaccinations for more patients, but requiring additional time for social distancing and PPE/infection control measures.

Please be aware that due to capacity issues some clinics will be held at FICS in the Farnham Centre for Health.

Please support us by following the guidance below, which are designed to protect you and our staff.

You will be asked to confirm that the answer is “no” to the following questions before you attend the Practice (or FICS) for your flu vaccination (if “yes” please call us for advice):

  • Do you have any of the following Covid symptoms: A temperature, a new continuous cough, a loss of taste or smell?
  • Have you reacted to a previous flu jab? 
  • Are you having/recently had chemotherapy or radiotherapy?
  • Are you allergic to antibiotics Gentamycin or Neomycin?
  • Have you recently finished a course of steroids? 

When you attend for your vaccination you should: 

  • Wear a face mask 
  • Do not attend early (or late!) for your appointment – please wait away from the building until your appointment time. 
  • We are operating a one way system - please enter the building by the front door, where you will be checked in by the receptionist and then leave by the back door after your vaccination 
  • Wear clothing that can be easily moved to expose the top of your arm for vaccination. 
  • Avoid touching anything whilst you are in the building. This should be for approximately 5 minutes only. If you think you may have difficulties in standing for the duration, please alert us when booking. 
  • Please leave immediately after your vaccination. We will not be able to deal with any other query at this time. 

Thank you for your assistance in making our flu programme run as smoothly as possible.
