Flu Jab Target Exceeded in Lothian

NHS Lothian has already exceeded a Scottish Government target on vaccinating people over the age of 65 against flu.

More than 74% of people in the category have accepted NHS Lothian’s offer of free protection against the potentially fatal disease, ahead of the 70% target, according to the latest available figures from GP practices.

The figures show the level of uptake as at the week ending the 5th of December, 2008.
