Staff winter vaccines and COVID-19 Boosters

Frontline health and social care workers are eligible for both COVID-19 and flu vaccines, and can now book vaccination appointments online using the national booking portal on NHS Inform.

Appointments are available at local community vaccination clinics across Forth Valley from Monday 5th September 2022, with priority appointments for health & social care staff available that week and week beginning Monday 12th September 2022.

Where possible, the COVID-19 booster jab will be given at the same time as the flu vaccine to those eligible, as evidence shows that administration of both vaccines together is a safe and efficient way to deliver maximum protection over the winter months.
