With coronavirus (COVID-19) around it's more important than ever to get the flu vaccine to protect yourself, others, and the NHS.
Our vaccine supplies are delivered in phases and phase 1 of flu clinics will be available for those Over 65 and to everyone in the “at risk” groups from October.
We are now offering flu vaccine appointments for patients who are eligible in Phase 1. This is for patients who are over 65 yrs and 18-64yrs who are in an “at-risk” group. We can only offer this service for patients registered at the Practice.
- Patients aged 65 years and 18-64yrs who are in an “at-risk” group should have received a letter from NHS Scotland. Please call the Practice on 01382 456700 to arrange an appointment for you Flu vaccination.
Delivering the flu vaccination programme this year will be very challenging as social distancing measures are in place. We will be delivering a high number of vaccines and we aim to keep everyone as safe as possible by offering individual appointments rather than a traditional drop-in clinic. We ask for your understanding of this when attending the Practice and your co-operation in the following -
When attending your flu appointment:
- Wear a face covering
- Attend alone (or with a carer, if required)
- Maintain physical distancing
- Attend as near to your appointment time as possible and no more than 5 minutes before your appointment. Please be aware that you might be asked to wait outside if you arrive too early for your appointment. If you are late for your appointment, you will need to call the practice to arrange another appointment.
- Sanitise hands on arrival and departure (we have sanitising points at reception and in the waiting area)
DO NOT attend the Practice if you are
- Displaying symptoms of COVID19 (cough, fever, loss of taste/smell)
- Self-isolating or in quarantine
- Awaiting a COVID test result
