Flu Immunisations 

Our adult flu vaccinations for 2020-21 have now arrived. Our procedures have changed this year due to the pandemic and we are trying to avoid having immunisation clinics during the working day. So our clinics will mainly be on Saturdays from mid-September to mid-October. We will be limiting the number of people who can enter the surgery at one time but instead of running one hour clinics we will be open for four hours. We will try to have more doctors or nurses present avoid queues. Things went very smoothly on our first few weekends of clinics and we have vaccinated 1570 patients which is over three quarters of our expected total for the year. There were no significant queues and social distancing was well maintained - thanks are due to all the patients who attended for making things easy for us. 

More information is on our flu vaccination page

***Child vaccination appointments are now again available to book - we have had a delivery of 50 more vaccines on 13th October***

*** For eligible children aged under 18 and adults aged over 65 only - for next clinic times please  SEE OUR NOTICEBOARD ABOVE LEFT.*** Appointment must be booked in advance by calling the surgery and we only have vaccines available for patients over 65 years old or under 18. We will be limiting the number of people in the building at one time in line with Health Board guidance. We will be trying to keep things moving quickly and had no queues of note so far with the busiest clinics now behind us.

Please wear loose clothing, and remember we will only be doing flu, shingles and pneumococcal immunisations. We need to avoid queues so will not be dealing with any other medical problems at these clinics.

Appointments for flu immunisation are also available at Tarbolton Pharmacy. Pre-booking may be required, just phone 01292 541207 or ask when collecting your prescription. I think the Pharmacy have vaccines for adults over 65 only as they have the same ordering issues as us.

There will be a vaccination clinic in Coylton Surgery by appointment only on Friday 23rd October from 12pm - 12.30pm. Please phone in advance to book an appointment - 01292571239.
