As you may be aware, due to the constraints of running flu vaccinations during COVID 19, the way these will be delivered is different from previous years.
Over 65 years
This year the health board will be vaccinating all over 65 year olds.
Please do not contact the surgery as we will be unable to deliver vaccinations to this group of patients.
Under 65 years at risk
These vaccinations will be delivered by Eildon Medical practice by appointment only. Clinics will run from October onwards. Appointments are available to book now by telephoning the surgery.
Pre School 2-5 years
We will contact you by telephone if your child is eligible for a flu vaccination. These vaccinations will be delivered by the practice by appointment only. Please don’t ring the surgery, we will ring you.
Household members of those shielding
Household members of anyone who was shielding should book via the NHS Borders booking line or by email as detailed above.
When you attend for your vaccination, please support us and the health board by following some simple guidance:
- Only come at your appointment time, do not arrive early.
- Please ensure you observe any social distancing measures in place.
- Wear a face covering.
- Please wear a zipped/buttoned top with a short sleeved top underneath and remove your top layer on the way to your appointment.
Please do not attend if you have symptoms consistent with Covid 19 (high temperature, a new continuous cough or a loss of taste, smell) or are unwell.
Please be patient with us. All our systems and procedures have had to be changed due to COVID19.
