Got both at the same time. Here the advice is you either get them same time or 3 weeks apart. Not sure why.

I felt really quite sore all over the day after but still well enough to go about my day.

Looking through some recent posts, I wonder if someone could just clarify something ?

I'm mid 50's and had my last Covid jag on 7th June. Will I be getting a letter from NHS Scotland asking me to go in and get the flu and booster jags, or am I supposed to make an appointment online ? I paid for my flu jag last year, but if I just have to wait to be contacted and get it free on the NHS that's what I will be doing.

There's a guide thing about half way down this page - looks like you're eligible for both and can book online.

You’ll get a letter, but only after 6 months from your second jag. I’m due mine after the 25th of this month.

Unless there is an admin slip up , you’ll get an invite , usually around a week before your 6 months are up 👍. If you dont and your 6 months expire you can then book them .

Is that for 50-59? GM said mid fifties.

Other eligible groups​

You are eligible for both a flu vaccine and a coronavirus booster if you are:

  • an adult aged 50 to 59
  • an adult carer or unpaid carer (aged 16 years or over)
  • a household contact (aged 16 years or over) of someone who is immunosuppressed
If you are eligible in one of these groups, you can book an appointment online for appointments in late November and December

I looked at 60-69, not sure if it’s for any other age group bud.
