4 October 2020 – From NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde
Please do not contact MCTCC about your flu jab. Please contact NHS on 0141 201 4180 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Due to restrictions around physical distancing and stopping the potential spread of infection, the way in which we will be carrying out the vaccination programme has changed. While the majority of those in the 18-64 age group who have underlying health conditions or are pregnant will continue to receive their vaccination at their GP surgery or via maternity services, everyone else who is eligible will be sent a letter with details of their appointment at a local community vaccination centre. The letters, which are being sent from National Services Scotland, have started to be distributed and those who will be receiving their appointment in this way will do so within the next six weeks.
Parents and guardian of children who are eligible, will either be notified by their child’s school, Pre-local School Immunisation Team or will receive a letter. Adults aged 65 and up will receive their letter first with the new eligible group of 55-64 year olds receiving their letter slightly later.
To help the vaccination programme in the region to run as smoothly as we can and ensure everyone who is eligible gets their vaccination in a timely way, we are asking members of the public to please try to keep the appointment you have been given, so that we can get everyone seen as quickly as possible.
If you receive your letter after your appointment date, please contact us on 0141 201 4180 to reschedule you appointment. Alternatively you can email email@example.com and we will make every effort to accommodate an alternative appointment.
