A ROSS-SHIRE medical practice is making preparations for flu vaccination clinics while it awaits an official decision on whether Covid boosters will be administered at the same time.

Dingwall Medical Group said: "We are currently awaiting a decision from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) as to whether Covid boosters will be administered alongside flu vaccinations this year.

"While awaiting this, preparations for our flu clinics are under-way in the practice and we anticipate being able to start vaccinating towards the end of October.

"Please do not phone the health centre regarding flu vaccinations, we will be in touch with you directly when you are due to be called." It asks anyone needing to update their contact details to do so via its website www.dingwallmedicalgroup.co.uk/doitonline.aspx
