FLU VACCINES

Posted on September 20th, 2021

We wanted to give you an update on this year’s ‘flu vaccination programme. First of all, it is really important all citizens are aware that GPs are no longer delivering this programme. Please do not contact your GP practice for information about immunisations, as they will not be able to help you.

Instead, eligible groups will be invited to attend our established vaccination centres. The exact order followed may vary across the three Health & Social Care Partnerships – #Aberdeen City, #Aberdeenshire, and #Moray – as local teams work according to vaccine supply and staff availability. However, we are committed to completing the programme for all eligible citizens by early December.

Work is already taking place to offer flu immunisation to eligible primary and secondary school children, and we thank our education colleagues for their support with this. Plans are being finalised to offer immunisations to older adults, resident in care homes. People working in health & social care will be able to book their vaccination appointments from next week.

Where citizens are eligible for both ‘flu and a COVID-19 booster jab, and the required time has passed following your second COVID-19 jab, these will be offered together.

If you are eligible for ‘flu immunisation – and you can get more information on this on the NHS Inform website – we will contact you directly – you do not need to take any action right now.
