Article: 56/605

The Scottish Government has reported that more than 2.7 million people have received their flu jab since September 2021. The flu vaccination programme, which has so far seen a 90% uptake in over 65s, was paused in December 2021 so that health boards could prioritise the delivery of COVID-19 booster jabs. Flu vaccinations are now available until the end of March 2022 for those in high-risk groups, and members of the public can check their eligibility on the NHS Inform website.
