The new centre at Lynebank Hospital, Dunfermline, will immunise against flu and COVID-19 as well as a range of other conditions including shingles, pneumococcal as well as children’s immunisations.
The clinic had been based at Dunfermline East Church, but is now set to get a permanent home within Lynebank Hospital.
East Church has been used over the summer months and replaced the previous site within the Kingsgate Shopping Centre.
As well as providing on-site parking, the new clinic has good public transport links nearby and is wheelchair accessible.
Karen Nolan, clinical services manager, said: “With the new winter vaccination programme starting shortly, I’m pleased that we are now able to settle into new permanent home .
“It will provide real benefits, both for patients and operationally.
“Perhaps the most important benefit is that being based within the hospital will enable us to provide a range of different vaccinations from a single site.”
