Everybody was kung-flu-fighting, the jab is fast like lightning!

The time has come for the CCG to contribute to fighting the flu. We have ordered 60 flu vaccines for staff, so you can get your free flu jab during working hours.

Two nurses from Essex Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust (EPUT) have kindly volunteered to support the CCG by administering the flu vaccines.

There are two flu jab clinics, the first clinic is on Monday 18 November 2019, 9am to 2pm and the second clinic will be confirmed in due course.

Book an appointment

1. Click to book your appointment
2. Enter your full name in the box named West Essex CCG unless you have used Doodle before and have an account. In this case, it will pre-fill the box with your name automatically.

3. Select a slot. There are four slots available every 15 minutes – If the slot has a red no entry sign when you try and click on it then these slots have already been taken.
4. Make a note of your chosen appointment, as you will not receive a confirmation email.

Bookings are based on a first-come, first-served basis.

On the day of your flu jab

Please arrive early to your chosen appointment at St Margaret’s Hospital, Clinic room, EppingForest Unit (9am – 2pm), to ensure the clinic is running on time. All staff will need to report to reception on arrival and need to wear their ID badge.

If you are no longer able to attend your appointment and wish to cancel, please email the Communications team as soon as possible.

Why it’s important to get the flu jab?

1. The flu vaccine will help prevent and protect you from getting the flu
2. Avoid you passing it on to family, friends and other vulnerable people
3. You only need it once every year
4. There’s evidence to suggest the flu vaccine can reduce your risk of having a stroke

For more information on the flu vaccine visit the NHS website, your GP or a Pharmacist.
