Seasonal Flu

The 2021 seasonal flu vaccination programme is now underway. We recommend that eligible people protect themselves and others and get the free flu vaccination this year.

In the coming months, we expect to offer a flu vaccination to over 700,000 people across Greater Glasgow and Clyde, ranging from school aged children to people living in care homes for the elderly.

Due to COVID restrictions and to do everything we can to keep our patients safe,  the way you get your flu vaccination may be different this year, but with COVID-19 still around, it’s more important than ever to get your flu vaccine.

To find out if you are eligible, please visit NHS Inform at https://www.nhsinform.scot/flu-vaccine

If you missed your flu vaccination this year there is still an opportunity to receive this as flu season runs through to the end of March.

If you are aged over 65 years or aged 16-64 years and have an underlying condition and normally receive flu vaccination you can receive flu through local participating community pharmacies across NHSGGC.
