Halewood Town Council is pleased to join forces with the Hollies Medical Centre and Knowsley CCG with the roll-out of the 2020 Flu Vaccination programme. From next Monday, staff from the Medical Centre will use Hollies Hall for the delivery of the flu jab to vulnerable residents and those aged 65+. The programme will initially focus on delivering vaccinations to the over 65 group before rolling-out to the wider population.
This is an appointment-only service and residents should contact Hollies Medical Centre directly for more information.
Commenting on the arrangement, the Mayor of Halewood (Cllr Bob Swann) stated “I am pleased to see Halewood Town Council partnering with the Knowsley CCG in making access to flu jabs quicker and easier for Halewood residents, especially given the anxieties many are feeling due to the Covid-19 pandemic”.
Dr Rai, as acting Primary Care Director stated: “We would like to thank Halewood Town Council and especially Gerry Allen for the rapid deployment of this programme – we will safely vaccinate the most at risk patients, and then all cohorts identified from the Hollies Medical Centre, and we will be contacting patients directly.
We will be using our joint operation for all Halewood patients as we want this to benefit the whole community and we will be contacting your own practices for them to link in with us. Please await contact by your own surgery for this aspect of the roll-out.
With this strategy we aim to vaccinate patients as safely as possible, and reduce the risk of transmission. ”
