Seasonal Influenza

Influenza is serious and with coronavirus (COVID-19) around it's more important than ever to get the flu vaccine this autumn if you are eligible. This is to protect yourself, others and the NHS. Vaccination is the best way of protecting yourself and those close to you by preventing the spread of the virus. You may wish to visit  NHS Inform for more information about the seasonal flu vaccination programme this year.

Kinglass Medical Practice will not be administering any adult flu jabs this year in-house. We will only be administering the nasal flu vaccine for 2 - 5 year old pre-school children in-house.  Housebound patients will be vaccinated by the Community District Nursing Team as in previous years.

NHS Forth Valley Health Board will be centrally managing the flu vaccination programme for eligible adults using external, local venues with an appointment-based system.   

This is the safest approach for vulnerable patients, many of whom have been shielding from the COVID 19 virus recently.  It also protects the sustainability of the Practice as it remobilises to provide all of its patients with wider NHS Services again.

Please be assured that if you are an eligible adult you will be sent a letter inviting you to attend an appointment for vaccination at a local venue in due course.  If you have any enquires about the appointment you are offered please telephone 01324 614692 or email fv.adultflu@nhs.scot

We are asking patients not to contact the Practice to enquire about appointments for an adult flu jab as we do not have operational access to the appointment system and we are unable to answer enquiries about how the Health Board is operating the flu vaccination programme in any detail.
