NHS Scotland Winter Vaccines (Flu and COVID-19)

NHS Scotland continues to offer winter vaccines. NHS Scotland recommends you get your vaccines as soon as they are offered to you.

Vaccines help to boost your immunity. As protection fades over time, it is important to have the vaccines when they are offered.  It is also never too late to take up the offer of vaccination. Please reassure those you support that it is not too late to get all of their recommended COVID-19 vaccines. People can get vaccinated if they have never been before or if it’s been a long time since their last COVID-19 vaccine. Vaccinators will be welcoming and happy to answer any questions.
