Flu’s Coming Get Ready For It Now
Show flu who’s boss by getting your vaccination. The best defence against flu is to take the vaccine sooner rather than later, particularly if you have an existing condition or are over 65yrs. The vaccine contains no live viruses, so it can’t give you flu, but it can help stop you catching it. It’s quick, safe and free to everyone in Scotland who has an underlying medical condition, is aged 65 or over, or is caring for someone who could be vulnerable.
The flu vaccine is available from October to March. Simply contact your GP practice to make an appointment, it only takes a few minutes to get vaccinated and it’ll help to keep you well over the winter.
