Flu Vaccinations

Please note that there are two important changes to the immunisation programme this year and both will be delivered by the practice:

  1. A shingles vaccine will be offered to all people aged 70 on 1 September 2013 (this includes all people who are born between 2 September 1942 and 1 September 1943) and all people aged 79 (this includes all people who are born between 2 September 1933 and 1 September 1934). Please see the leaflet Aged 70 or 79? Protect yourself against shingles for further information. If you are eligible for the shingles vaccine this will be given at the same time as the flu vaccine.

  2. From 1 October 2013 the seasonal flu vaccination programme will be extended to all 2 and 3 year old children. A central letter of invitation will be issued by the Scottish Government to all eligible 2 and 3 year olds.
