We need everyone to help prevent the spread of flu this winter! Make sure you protect yourself and our patients by getting your free flu jab.
Ward 34 at Ninewells has really embraced the peer vaccination programme and, with almost 99% of the team immunised, has set the bar high for other wards and departments across Tayside. Well done to haematology team!
More than 5500 of our staff have already been vaccinated against flu. Have you?
It is the single most important thing you can do to stop the spread of flu in our hospitals and communities.
If you haven’t had the vaccine yet and have concerns about it please watch the video below to get the facts about flu.
There’s still opportunities to get vaccinated and help stop the virus spreading in our hospitals and communities so if you haven’t had the jab yet, now is the time!
We added additional clinic dates across Tayside so please try and get along to one of these sessions and get yourself protected against flu. Sessions will be taking place in Ninewells, Stracathro, Arbroath Infirmary, Links Health Centre in Montrose and Perth Royal Infirmary.
Details of clinics for staff and volunteers are listed below. You can also contact your local community pharmacies to arrange a vaccination – please remember to bring your staff ID badge.
Staff are asked where possible to wear short or loose sleeved clothing when you go for your vaccination and you can also complete a consent form to take with you to help save time in the clinic.
If you are in an at-risk group and have been vaccinated at your GP surgery we would appreciate if you could please let us know by completing our data collection form. This means we can add you to our uptake figures and get a more accurate picture of how many of our staff are protected against flu.
