Flu vaccinations set to begin in Forth Valley.
This year, due to Covid-19, a very different approach is being taken to maintain physical distancing and help keep safe.
The majority of people will be immunised in a local ‘community hub’ and will receive a letter giving them an appointment time and details of where to attend. Large venues such as Falkirk Town Hall, Dobbie Hall in Larbert, Bo’ness and Grangemouth Town Halls, Stirling Albert Halls and Alloa Town Hall have been booked, and each person will be seen within a 15-minute appointment time.
 
A number of local pharmacies* will also provide flu vaccinations to care home staff and those providing care at home.

MIA - new Minor Injuries Assessment Service - this new service has been launched in Forth Valley to provide quicker, more convenient treatment for minor injuries and avoid overcrowding to help keep staff and patients safe. Anyone with a minor injury is now being asked to call MIA – the new Minor Injuries Assessment service on 01324 566130.
Patients will then be offered a video assessment so they can quickly access clinical advice or an appointment in either Stirling or Larbert so they don’t have to wait to be seen when they attend.  Find out more ➡️ https://nhsforthvalley.com/call-mia-new-service-offers-qui…/
