Greenock and Inverclyde MSP, Stuart McMillan, has welcomed the introduction of a travel vaccinations service at Boots’ Greenock store in the Oak Mall Shopping Centre.
As part of Health Information Week 2018, Mr McMillan met Boots’ pharmacist Neil Morton to find out more about this new service – something few pharmacies offer – which is normally performed by GPs.
Commenting, Mr McMillan said:
“It was great to spend time in the local store with Neil to find out about Boots’ new service which offers travel vaccinations to customers, something people would previously have went to their GP for.
“The Greenock store is the only Boots pharmacy in Inverclyde that offers this service and I encourage any constituents requiring a vaccination before travelling to consider booking an appointment with them.
“I’m delighted that Boots is performing this service as it will help take pressure off GPs who may feel the need to squeeze in appointments to ensure people receive their vaccinations on time.”
Lloyds pharmacy in Gourock also offers this service.
