Ballochmyle patients - important update - Flus and Covid boosters for over 80's and housebound only.
Patients who are aged 80 years or over will be contacted by letter inviting them to attend for their Influenza and Covid booster vaccines. Appointments will be held at Cumnock Health Centre. The nurse will be able to administer both Flu and Covid boosters at the same appointment. The Covid booster given will be Pfizer and you will be given a 15 minute appointment. Housebound patients will be contacted directly with visit details.
We ask that you do not call the practice as patients will be contacted directly with an appointment. This is because there is a recommended minimum time frame between your 2nd Covid Vaccine and when your booster will be due.
This years campaign for all other eligible patients will be led by the healthboard.
Please pass this information to family and friends.
We thank you all for your ongoing support and patience.
