2021-2022 Flu Immunisation
It’s likely that flu viruses and the virus that causes coronavirus (COVID-19) will both be spreading this autumn and winter. Flu is a respiratory virus so it has similar symptoms to coronavirus. This year all flu vaccines will be managed by the Health Board. All under 16's will be managed by child health. Everyone entitled, over 16 will receive an appointment by post from NHSGGC. GP practices are not involved and cannot assist with queries. Please check the below link for more information. If you're eligible, your flu and coronavirus booster vaccines will be given at the same time, one in each arm. Please see our Covid/Booster page for more information.
Who will be offered the flu vaccine

NHS Scotland recommends you get the vaccine as soon as it is offered to you.
