The flu vaccine provides the best available protection against flu. It is not 100% effective, but it will protect a significant number of people and reduce the severity of flu if you get it. It could also help your relatives or carers because you will not be passing the disease to them.
More information on the vaccine is available via NHS Inform.
Demand for the flu vaccine has been much higher than usual with flu clinics seeing good take-up by staff. NSS have confirmed they anticipate more flu clinics to be available from 30th November 2020, with appointments being available to book from 25th November 2020.
Booking an Appointment
To make an appointment you first need to register with ‘MyCohort’:
If you have already completed the self-registration process:
The “pending” status that staff see in My Cohort’s My Appointment will change to “Completed” once the vaccine has been administered, so staff can be reassured that they are booked for the appointment despite it “pending”.
The video also shows how you can access ‘MyCohort’ via your mobile phone to manage your appointment.
Attending your Flu appointment
On the day of your appointment please:
Staff are not permitted to enter office areas or other sections of the building unless agreed in advance with their Line Manager and NSS Facilities.
Please note, if you have secured the vaccine through an external provider such as through your GP or NHS Flu Clinic , please could you notify us via the External Flu Vaccination Form.
If you have any queries on the above or in relation to your appointment, please contact the NSS Occupational Health team directly via email@example.com
