FLU VACCINATION PROGRAMME 2021

The way you will get your flu vaccine this year has changed.

 

From now on, GP practices will not administer the Flu jab. Across Scotland, Health and Social Care Partnerships are taking on this role in line with the GP Contract agreed by BMA Scotland on behalf of Scottish GPs. This change has been agreed to relieve pressure on GP practices. As a result your local practice will not offer any flu vaccinations or handle any booking queries for people in eligible groups.

 

Instead, the flu vaccine will be delivered by the four Health and Social Care Partnerships in Lothian - East Lothian; Midlothian; Edinburgh and West Lothian.

 

If you are eligible for a free flu vaccine you will get a letter from NHS Scotland. This will either give you an appointment date and time at one of the flu vaccination clinics in Lothian, or instruct you to make an appointment using an online portal.

 

If you are eligible for a Covid booster, you may get this at the same time as your flu jab, but this is not guaranteed, and you may have to attend two separate appointments.

 

If you have received a letter with an appointment that you are unable to attend, you can rearrange your appointment online at NHS Inform. Alternatively, you can call the Lothian helpline on 0300 790 6296 for assistance with re-booking.

 

Please do not contact your GP.

 

If you are housebound, your jabs will be given to you by the housebound team, and they will be in touch to arrange this.

  

You can find out more on the websites of the Health and Social Care Partnerships or on NHS Inform.
