Flu Clinic Dates 2018-19


The flu vaccine is the best available protection against the flu virus. It is very safe, only takes a few minutes and will last around a year.

Flu is more than a bad cold and can make people very unwell. It’s highly infectious, with symptoms that come on quickly and can hit anyone. In the most serious of cases, flu can bring on pneumonia, or other serious infections which can, in extreme cases, result in death.

There are certain groups of people that are more likely to be badly impacted by the flu. Therefore NHS Scotland provides flu vaccines to the following patient groups:

  • People with a chronic health condition
  • People aged 65 years or over
  • Pregnant women
  • People who work in healthcare
  • Children aged 2-5 years
  • Primary school children (in-school vaccination.)

Children usually will get their vaccine in the form of a nasal spray.

There will be a number of flu clinics delivered by Kersiebank Medical Practice this year. They are on the following dates:

  • Monday 15th October 2018 (9.00am to 4.30pm.) – Drop in clinic for patients who are over the age of 65.
  • Tuesday 23rd October 2018 – Appointment only clinic for patients between the ages of 18 and 64.
  • Tuesday 30th October 2018 – Appointment only clinic for patients under the age of 18 to get the nasal flu vaccine.
