Reassurance over Dartmouth flu vaccine supplies
A national shortage of flu vaccine should not affect those already booked into flu clinics in Dartmouth, the town’s medical practice has said.
Even though there is a shortage of vaccine, due to supply problems for one the country’s main vaccine providers, Dartmouth has enough vaccine for those currently booked into flu clinics. Those who would have received their jabs at home may have the time of their injection rearranged, but no one will miss out on a vital jab this winter, said the practice.
If you have an appointment booked at one of these clinics the medical practice is advising to go along as planned. A single session of the clinics, at the Flavel Arts Centre on October 19 in the afternoon has been cancelled, but this will be rescheduled to another date in November or December. The morning session on October 19 will still go ahead.
When more vaccine becomes available new clinics will be scheduled in November and December to ensure anyone in the Dartmouth and district area that needs a flu vaccination for the winter can get one.

Dartmouth Medical Practice Manager Kathy Congdon said: “This is a small glitch in the organisation of the flu vaccine roll out this year. There is a national shortage of supply, but we will receive vaccines and will have completed jabs for everyone in the area who needs them by the end of December. If you have an appointment for a flu jab please still go along, we would individually contact anyone if there is a problem with their appointment.”
