More than ever before flu vaccination is highly recommended for those at risk due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak. Flu vaccine is now available for all individuals age 60-64, which is an extension to the usual eligibility criteria for NHS flu vaccine. Flu vaccination will now be delivered by Lothian Health Board staff rather than in our practice as in previous years. The options for obtaining flu vaccine are listed below:
