In the first week of the new Flu Vaccination Programme within Edinburgh, around 7500 patients were vaccination across 7 drive-through sites and 1 walk-through site. Saturday was very busy in most sites with Sunday much more manageable. Waiting times were between 2mins and 90 mins depending on the site and time of day.
Patients were turned away to come back another day at 2 sites, affecting around 200 patients.
Patient feedback overall though was overwhelmingly good.
