For those who have been sent an invitation to be vaccinated there is now an alternative clinic being run in, but not by, the local practice in Queensferry.

This will be every Saturday for 10 weeks starting 2/10 8.30 – 16.30. There will be NO DROP ins appointment only. You have to have an invitation to be able to get in and change your appointment so I have not been able to verify this works. I believe it is already very busy.

If you have received a letter with an appointment that you are unable to attend, you can rearrange your appointment for a more local venue by going online at https://www.nhsinform.scot/flu-vaccine/invitations-and-appointments/rearrange-your-flu-vaccine-appointment. Alternatively you can call the Lothian helpline on 0300 790 6296 for assistance with re-booking.

For those who cannot get the appointment changed the clinical lead at Ingliston is happy to take groups of people from this area or Kirkliston that travel together even if their days/times are far apart but again you do need to have been sent an appointment.
