Flu vaccine delivery delays.  Practices across the UK have been informed today that flu vaccine deliveries from the supplier Seqirus are going to be delayed by at least one or two weeks due to "unforeseen freight challenges". That means that the UK General Practoces will be wothout vaccines, possibly until the beginning of October. This is completely outside of their control.  Your GP practice will continue to work hard to change their existing plans and ensure that as soon as confirmed delivery dates are received patients will be contacted and appointments booked.


Covid Vaccinations

Patients Aged 16 – 17

All 16 and 17 year olds can now have their Covid-19 vaccine.  This is one dose.

Currently this age group is not able to book an appointment via the national booking site and GPs will not be vaccinating in practice.  However you can use walk-in sessions to get vaccinated - this includes at Saints.

You can search all ‘Grab a jab’ drop-in vaccination sessions that will vaccinate 16-17 year olds with no appointment needed here

Please get vaccinated before the return to school/college to protect yourself and others.

Face Mask Notice

Have you had your Covid vaccination yet?  You can also now have your 2nd after 8 weeks.

Visit and call in for a vaccination at a time and place that suits you.

St Helens GPs will be booking the Priority Risk groups from 1-6, the most recent being group 6 which includes adults aged 16 – 65 with underlying health problems, which put them in the “at risk” group for more please go to the Government website at:-


Patients Aged 60 and over with no underlying health conditions and registered carers will be the next ones on the list to be contacted for their first dose of the Covid vaccine.
