Vac­ci­na­tions for young peo­ple

The Oban Times - - News -

YOUNG peo­ple in the Western Isles are be­ing in­vited to par­tic­i­pate in the na­tional vac­ci­na­tion pro­gramme for pro­tec­tion against menin­gi­tis and sep­ti­caemia.

Ap­point­ments will be sent to all peo­ple aged 14 to 18 years be­tween Jan­uary and March. The pro­gramme in the Western Isles is based in GP prac­tices rather than in schools, un­like the rest of Scot­land.

If you have a child aged 14 to 18 years, or you are in the age group and wish to be vac­ci­nated, look out for your let­ter or con­tact your GP prac­tice di­rectly.
