The Winter Vaccination Programme will start in September 2021, and will be a bit different this year. Instead of flu vaccinations taking place in GP practices, as has been the case for many years, they are going to be carried out in larger vaccination centres.
We don’t have all the details at the moment but we can tell you:
· 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 by NHS Lothian, and we will provide another update when further information becomes available.
Please don’t phone the practice about flu and other winter vaccinations, as we don’t have any additional information at the moment. Please keep an eye on our website or NHS inform.
You can also find out if you’re in a priority group eligible for a flu vaccine on NHS Inform.
