Free winter flu vaccination are now available again.  This is a massively popular work well NL offer and we are delighted to be launching it again for all colleagues.

The vaccinations are available through vouchers for use at your local Lloyds Pharmacy or at organised clinics.

Why should I get a flu vaccination?

The flu is much worse than a bad cold, thousands are hospitalised with flu every year in Scotland.  The flu vaccination is the safest, most effective may to protect yourself from the flu.  Check out the NHS winter flu vaccination facts .

How do I get my vaccination?

Clinics

If you work on the frontline you will be able to get your vaccination at a clinic organised by your service (who will contact you about this)

or Vouchers for Lloyds Pharmacy

You can use a flu vaccination voucher at a local Lloyds Pharmacy to get your vaccination.  Let your line manager know that you would like to receive a voucher.  Line managers are to collate colleagues names who would like to receive a flu vaccination voucher and email this to NLflu@northlan.gov.uk before Friday 25th October.  Vouchers will then be passed to line managers for distrbution.

Find out your nearest most convenient store with the Lloyds Pharmacy shop finder.  Please note when you do have your voucher Lloyds recommend you call ahead to check vaccination availability for the time you are planning to pop by.

To support colleagues in the Cumbernauld/Kilsyth/Shotts areas where Lloyds Pharmacies don’t have any shops some additional clinics will be arranged.  The clinics in these areas will be advertised in the coming weeks.
