The Winter Vaccination Programme will start in September 2021.
It’s more important than ever to get the free flu vaccine, that’s why the flu vaccine is being offered to more people than ever before, to protect as many lives as possible this winter. Appointment information will be issued shortly – you don’t have to call your GP. To find out if you’re eligible visit https://www.nhsinform.scot/flu

If you have not been seen at the surgery for three years (or one year for those over 75 years) you can request a check-up appointment if you wish. Please call 0131 554 6471 to make an appointment or if you are unable to attend the surgery to make alternative arrangements.

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
