FLU Service Update 

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

Flu can be serious and life threatening. Every year thousands of people in Scotland are hospitalised because of flu. People aged 65 or over are at particular risk.

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.                                                                                          

Secondary school pupils at risk vaccines will be carried out within the Practice - please note we will contact you direct to book these appointments.   

2-5 years old will receive a letter to go to a hub and pupils of school age at risk will receive the vaccine at school.

 For more information on who is eligible for a free flu vaccination and when and where you will receive your vaccine this year  

Please note drive through clinics may be affected due to adverse weather conditions.

    This means your problem may be dealt with by phone, video or in person at the practice.
