To take into account COVID-19 guidelines, in particular social distancing, the way that we will be vaccinating staff has changed this year. There will be two routes: Staff in clinical areas will be vaccinated through the peer vaccination programme in their place of work. Non-clinical staff will be vaccinated by Occupational Health. This means we will not be holding the usual mass clinics.
All staff in clinical areas (except laboratory medicine) should get their flu vaccination by peer vaccination. Ask your line manager what the arrangements are for your area.
All staff getting their flu vaccination should fill in the registration form BEFORE being vaccinated.
Staff in other areas such as IT, finance, facilities, laundry, decontamination unit, telecommunications, medical physics will still have the opportunity to be vaccinated. Click here to find out how you can get your vaccination.
We're aiming to maximise the flu vaccination uptake and participation amongst all NHSGGC staff.
We need you to be a flu hero this winter and do everything you can to keep your patients, colleagues, family and friends safe. We can all work together to reduce flu risks for everyone.
To help make it possible for all NHSGGC staff to quickly and easily get their flu vaccination this year:
Please note: For those staff working from home, you will need to complete the following registration form here
Access the new staff flu registration form here. Read the registration user guide here. Data from the Staff Flu system will be transferred to the Occupational Health Cohort IT system. These records are entirely secure and only accessible to Occupational Health staff and to the individual member of staff.
You can infect others simply by breathing? You don’t have to cough or sneeze to spread the virus, it can spread from water vapour, every time you breathe.
Bee a flu hero. Don’t infect. Protect.
