FLU Vaccine How to book

To Book a Flu Vaccination, Drive Through or Walk In, visit https://www.nhsinform.scot/flu  or call  0800 22 44 88 

Clinics will change because of staffing/weather/site changes etc. Patients should  check a few days before that the clinic they intended to attend is still running. 

Flu Vaccination.  This year patients will be sent notification from Lothian Health Board where they can go to have their flu injection.   Please do not call the surgery regarding flu vaccination appointments . 

The flu vaccine is offered in autumn to everyone aged 65 or over and those in the at risk in Scotland to help protect them against influenza (the flu virus). NHS Scotland strongly recommends you get your flu vaccine this year. This is for three reasons:

1. Flu can be serious and life threatening. Every year thousands of people in Scotland are hospitalised because of flu. People aged 65 or over and those in the at risk categories are at particular risk

2. To reduce the risk of you spreading flu to friends and family.

3. To help our NHS avoid the pressure that a spike in seasonal flu would put on top of COVID-19.

Is it safe to go to my flu vaccine appointment?

• Getting your flu vaccine is one of the most important reasons for leaving your home.

• During vaccination, strict infection prevention and control measures will be in place.

• Please wear a face covering while travelling to and from and during your appointment, and remember to wash your hands regularly.
