The way the Flu vaccination is delivered to the Public in Grampian is set for significant change this year, as the location for immunisations shifts from GP Practices to dedicated clinics. Patients who previously got their free vaccine from their GP will now be invited to attend a local vaccination clinic instead. This also comes at a time where we we anticipate the number of flu vaccinations to increase significantly, with additional groups being offered immunisation due to Covid-19. Clinics will be set up at locations across Grampian within secondary schools to allow for social distancing. Measures will be put in place to ensure health and safety is priority. Patients who fall into one of the "At Risk Groups will be sent a letter with an appointment.
