Flu Vaccinations 2013 and Shingles vaccine

It is the time of year for annual Flu vaccinations.  We are having our usual drop-in open days for eligible patients on Saturday, 5 October 2013 (10am to 3pm) in Stewarton Health Centre, and on Wednesday, 9 October 2013 (9.30 to 12 Noon) in Dunlop (Church of Scotland Hall).  If you are not able to attend on these dates, we will be running bookable clinics over the following weeks.

Flu vaccinations are available for patients aged over 65 years, those under 65 with certain chronic conditions, pregnant women, carers and, new for this year, all children aged 2 and 3 years on 1 September 2013 (see separate News post).

If eligible for a flu jab, you may also be offered a Pneumococcal vaccination, if you have not already had one.

Also new for this year is a Shingles vaccine which is being offered to 70 and 79 year olds.
