A walk-in flu vaccination clinic and Covid-19 booster is open Monday in Ferguslie Park

An NHS walk-in vaccination unit will visit the Ferguslie Park area of ​​Paisley on Monday.

Anyone over 65 in Renfrewshire can receive the flu shot or Covid-19 booster shot without an appointment on the same day. The service will operate on a first come, first served basis.

It should be noted that the Covid-19 booster will only be given if at least three months have passed since the patient received their last dose.

Good attendance would ensure the greatest number of people vaccinated and protected during the winter period.

However, there will be a set number of vaccines available on the day, so anyone visiting is advised to do so as soon as possible.

Johnstone South & Elderslie councilor Andy Steel is encouraging eligible people in his ward to come to Ferguslie on Monday. He said: ‘I very much welcome this visit from the NHS mobile unit and hope it will be well received by people.

“I urge anyone who has not received an appointment to come to this clinic as soon as possible. We have seen over the past few years how important vaccinations are in protecting us from disease – there is no sense in risking it.

If you already have an appointment before this date, you should show up for your appointment rather than waiting for the mobile unit.

The vaccination truck will be at Ferguslie Sports Centre, 100 Blackstoun Road, Paisley, PA3 1EX from 10am to 5pm on Monday 24th October 2022.

If you are unable to make the walk-in service and are over 65, eligible and have not yet received an appointment, you can call 0800 030 8013 to get one at an NHSGGC community clinic or you can book an appointment online. at https://vacs.nhs.scot/csp.
