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

People aged 70 or over will now be sent a letter by the national booking system with details of an appointment at a vaccination centre.

GP practices no longer 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 require further information or you need to rearrange your appointment, please contact the helpline on your appointment invitation or the local enquiry line on 0300 790 6296.

Please do not contact your GP Practice
