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.
How do I get the flu vaccination?
The panel on the right will indicate if you’re in a priority group eligible for a flu vaccine. More detailed information is also available directly on NHS inform
The Flu Campaign starts in September 2021. The full details are not yet known. However, please bear in mind the following facts:
- You WILL NOT get your vaccine at your GP surgery
- You WILL get your vaccine at a clinic set up to vaccinate large numbers of people quickly
- You WILL have a pre-booked appointment or be invited to make a booking at a vaccination clinic.
Details on the vaccination clinics are being finalised and when supplies of vaccines become available we will update this page as soon as we have more information.
Please don’t phone the practice as we don’t have any additional information for the moment.
Please keep an eye on our website or NHS inform.
