Have You Had Your Flu Jab Yet?

By Nick Morrison

We had our Flu jabs this Friday at the Kirkwall Vaccination Center.

The Vaccination center is the old Skerryvore practice building in the old Balfour complex.

It was a very swift and efficient operation with a coordinator in the carpark who offered to slot me through early as I was well early for my appointment.

Well done to the staff and the “backroom boys and girls” who planned it.

It is especially vital this year that you get a flu jab if you can.

Whilst there have been no formal investigation of this effect there is substantial evidence going back decades that people who have the flu jab have a form of immunity to other virus

Your first point of contact should be your GP/Practice.

  1. Nick, fully agree. I got an invite from my GP offering us 4 or 5 dates and times, made our appointment and got our jabs over two weeks ago. Whole exercise went like clock-work and we were in and out in about 5 minutes. Full marks Brae, Health Center and all their great staff – a well oiled machine.
