If you are in the age range of 60-64, and are registered with a General Practice within Glasgow City HSCP, you are eligible for a seasonal flu vaccination this year, and should have received a National letter notifying you of this. The letter has been sent to people whose date of birth falls between 1st April 1956 and 31st March 1961.
