FLU VACCINES for 2020/21
We will will soon be starting to administer Flu Vaccines for Selected patient groups. Due to COVID 19 and the requirement to maintain social distancing we will be contacting those Patients between the ages of 18-65 who are elligle for the Flu Vaccine with a set appointment to attend the practice to have this administered. It is important to keep to this appointment; it will be difficult to provide extra appointments to large numbers of patients who miss their time slot. We ask that patients arrive on-time and, if possible, on their own so that we do not have too many people waiting in the health centre at any one time. Our first prearranged session for Flu Vaccination is on Sunday the 4th October for those who we have already invited. Further invitations for remaining patients will be posted in due course.
For patients who are 65 or over and for those who are housebound the Health Board will be contacting you to arrange your vaccine directly and this will either be administered in the health centre or at home by the Health Board rather than by the practice. Children will either get their nasal flu vaccine at school or from the Health Board.

Previously known as The Blackwood Partnership, our practice is one of the oldest in Govan with a history dating back to the early 20th century. In 2015 we changed the practice name to the David Elder Medical Practice by popular demand from our patients. Born in 1795, David Elder was a marine engineer known as one of the forefathers of shipbuilding on the Clyde. For more information see the excellent website at www.acumfaegovan.com.
