The Renfrewshire Health & Social Care Partnership (HSCP) has opened a flu vaccination centre at St Mirren Park for those in Renfrewshire eligible for the flu vaccination.
The flu centre is located in the West Stand with access available at Drums Avenue gate.
Every year in Scotland, thousands of people are hospitalised with flu. It can be serious and life threatening, so getting vaccinated is the safest and most effective way to protect yourself.
With COVID-19 still with us and cases on the increase, it is vital that people’s safety is the highest priority. The facility at St Mirren Park will enable the HSCP to manage the increased number of people they need to vaccinate this year, while giving them more ability to safely control the flow of people through the vaccination process.
St Mirren Chief Executive Tony Fitzpatrick visited the facility this morning to receive his vaccination. He said: “St Mirren Football Club is delighted to make St Mirren Park available to Renfrewshire Health & Social Care Partnership for its flu vaccination programme.
“Having the flu centre located at St Mirren Park will allow the Renfrewshire Health & Social Care Partnership to provide the safest possible way to deliver their service in these difficult times.”
