NHS Scotland strongly recommends you get your flu vaccine this year. This is for three reasons:

Flu can be serious and life threatening, even for healthy children. Every year thousands of people in Scotland are hospitalised because of flu.
To reduce the risk of you spreading flu to friends and family.
To help our NHS avoid the pressure that a spike in seasonal flu would put on top of COVID-19.

See the panel on the right to determine whether you qualify for a free vaccination. If you are not eligible, you can pay for a flu vaccination at many community pharmacies. This link displays a list of all community pharmacies offering flu vaccinations in our area.

Are you eligible for a free flu vaccination?

If you are eligible for a free vaccination but have not yet received it, please contact the practice.
