    Get your flu vaccine early at YourGP

    With heavy rain and storms officially marking the end of the UK’s Indian summer, there’s no better time to start thinking about your annual flu vaccination.

    Seasonal flu is a highly infectious respiratory illness that spreads rapidly through the population, passed on via coughs and sneezes.

    Although flu has been relatively mild in recent years, 904 people were admitted to intensive care with flu last winter, with 98 people dying as a result.

    As part of our commitment to convenient, high-quality care, YourGP is always one of the first medical practices in Edinburgh where your seasonal flu jab is available.

    We receive delivery a few weeks before the NHS, ensuring availability for those that want it early.

    Our annual flu vaccination clinics in Edinburgh are open seven days a week between September and February ‘while stocks last’ – and to ensure you stay protected, we recommend having your flu jab each year.

    The vaccine, a single injection, is available to adults and children from six months old.

    Flu vaccinations for companies in Edinburgh

    As well as offering flu vaccines to the general public, we also provide vaccination programmes for companies of all sizes across Edinburgh and the east of Scotland.

    Offering your staff protection from flu is a key step you can take to keep your employees healthy.

    With flu being a major cause of absenteeism during the winter months, and with workplace absence due to sickness costing an average of £595 per employee per year, getting staff vaccinated is definitely worthwhile.

    We are able to adapt to your employees’ busy schedules, or we can attend your company premises.

    Discounts are also available for group vaccinations, dependant on the numbers.

    For more information or to arrange flu vaccinations for you or your staff, email, call 0131 225 5656 or use our booking form.
