Alongside the flu vaccination programme, we will be running the Covid-19 booster vaccination programme which also begins this September and is currently open to direct patient-facing frontline health and social care staff.
You can get your COVID-19 booster jab at the same time as your flu jab without the need for a separate appointment. Getting vaccinated is the best way to protect yourself and reduce your chances of passing these viruses on to your loved ones and those in your care.
Every year in Scotland people are hospitalised with flu and with the rate of COVID-19 transmission remaining high, it’s more important than ever for healthcare workers to get vaccinated.
You can spread both flu and COVID-19 to patients and colleagues, even if you have very mild symptoms or no symptoms at all.
