Housebound and Care Home Vaccinations
Practices across Norfolk and Waveney are under immense pressure to deliver ‘business as usual’ primary care services alongside roll out of the seasonal flu vaccination programme and covid-19 boosters.
Local health teams will provide home visits for those patients who have no other alternative due to immobility or very serious ongoing health conditions. But we are asking all other patients to attend their surgery, vaccination site or pharmacy for flu or booster vaccinations rather than requesting a home visit. More information can be found here.
