Guidance on Flu Vaccinations from the Edinburgh Health & Social Care Partnership

Adapted from an email from the Edinburgh Health and Social Care Partnership to Stakeholders with information on the Flu vaccination programme in Edinburgh

Flu vaccinations just got easier in Edinburgh                                                    

The way people get their free flu jabs in Edinburgh is changing

Staying healthy, safe and cared for is more important now than ever before. Protecting yourself from flu this winter is one easy way to do this.

This year the Edinburgh Health and Social Care Partnership has introduced a new way of getting your flu vaccination in Edinburgh - the flu drive through. Instead of visiting your GP to get your vaccine, you will visit one of eight drive through clinics across Edinburgh.

The drive through clinics will open most weekends in October and November but it’s always helpful to check for any changes in the timetable. If you don’t have access to a car, you’ll be able to visit a walk through clinic and details of these are also on the NHS Inform website.

If you are eligible for a free flu vaccine, or for more information, go to www.nhsinform.scot/flu to find out where you can get your jab in Edinburgh. If you qualify for a free vaccine you’ll be given a time to attend a clinic after completing a short questionnaire.

Please help neighbours and friends who may not be comfortable with accessing websites.

Find your nearest flu drive through on NHS inform.scot/flu or by calling 0800 22 44 88
