Flu Clinics 2020

Who do I see?

Advice:

This year, because of Covid-19, the flu clinics in the practice are running differently  to what you will be used to.  This year we are only vaccinating our under 65 at risk patients, and you should have already received your letter by now, inviting you to call to make an appointment.  It is not a drop in clinic this year.

All other patients will be vaccinated as follows:

Over 65s will be vaccinated in the Health Centre (downstairs) and will receive a letter from NHS Scotland with a date and time.  This is all being done centrally, and is outwith our control.  All appointments should be received by mid-November, and you are asked, where possible, to keep the appointment given.  We believe the invites are being sent by date of birth order, so if you receive one, and your husband/wife etc does not, that is likely why.  The phone lines are very busy for the number they have given, so you are asked not to call if you have not received your invite yet, it is coming.

6 months-2 years at risk are being vaccinated by the pre-school vaccination team.

2-5 year olds will be sent a letter.

Primary school children will be vaccinated by the school vaccination team.

Pregnant women will be vaccinated by their midwife.

55-64 year olds will be vaccinated centrally, same as the Over 65s, but letters will not arrive until after the Over 65s have had theirs, so mid to late November.
