DROP-In Flu Vaccination Clinics

15 September, 2023 | Local, Noticeboard

FLU vaccination drop-in clinics are being held in Inverclyde.

They take place at Greenock Town Hall, Cathcart Square on Sunday (17 September) and Thursday 21 September, 10am to 6pm, and at Port Glasgow Town Hall, Shore Street, on Sunday 24 September, 10am to 6pm.

The drop-ins are open to anyone who is in an eligible group for flu vaccinations and does not have an appointment, or cannot make the appointment booking time that has been given to them.

The winter vaccination programme is for those aged 50 to 64, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde staff, and vulnerable groups.

Dr Emilia Crighton, director of public health at NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, said: “Flu is serious and even healthy people can become very ill from it.

“The flu virus is always changing, and getting vaccinated every year is the best way to stay protected for the whole winter season.

“The rollout of this winter vaccination program provides eligible groups with the opportunity to get ahead of these viruses prior to the cold, winter months hitting hard. It is the best way for people to protect themselves and their loved ones.”
