Flu jab up­take

Argyllshire Advertiser - - YOUR VIEWS -

Sir, The lat­est fig­ures show that just 39 per cent of over 65s have been im­mu­nised, com­pared to 45 per cent at this point in 2017 and 51.7 per cent in Eng­land.

The SNP gov­ern­ment has had all year to get ready for this, and still we’re hav­ing to raise very se­ri­ous con­cerns.

Nicola Stur­geon needs to give an as­sur­ance to at-risk groups, es­pe­cially those over 75, that they can ac­cess the op­ti­mum flu jab be­fore win­ter re­ally be­gins to bite.

The SNP should drop its con­sti­tu­tional games and get back to the day job. Coun­cil­lor Alas­tair Red­man, Isle of Is­lay
