Make sure you book your COVID-19 booster to maximise protection
People aged 18 and over can book boosters online.
All adults aged 18 and over can book their appointment for a COVID-19 vaccine booster through the online portal on NHS inform: www.nhsinform.scot/covid19vaccinebooster
If you are unable to access the online portal you can book an appointment through the National Helpline on 0800 030 8013.
Even if you’ve been double-vaccinated, your immunity against COVID-19 wanes over time. That’s why boosters are necessary. The booster vaccine gives you the protection you need against serious COVID-19 illness. Local Health Boards are offering additional drop-in facilities - you can find information on local health board websites and social media.
Appointments must be booked at least 12 weeks after a second dose however adults with a confirmed case of the virus since receiving a vaccine should wait four weeks from testing positive to receive their booster. Even if you have had COVID-19 it is still important you come forward and complete your vaccination course to maximise your protection.You can view a short video on how to use the booking portal at: www.youtube.com/watch?v=PiEd6-r_dKU
Anyone in earlier groups who missed their vaccination can book an appointment by calling the National Helpline on 0800 030 8013 which is open from 8am to 8pm, 7 days a week.
COVID RESTRICTIONS WITHIN THE SURGERY
Despite COVID restrictions easing, the Scottish Government requires General Practice and other healthcare settings to have different infection control and physical distancing guidance to other places such as hospitality and shops. This is to help reduce the risk to Practice staff and to people attending the Practice who may be at greater risk if they catch COVID 19.
The following rules still apply in General Practice:
- wearing of face coverings by patients and the public (unless you are exempt)
- physical distancing of 1 metre within waiting rooms
- contact your Practice by telephone in the first instance rather than attending the surgery
- wearing of PPE by staff
- screening of all patients for Covid 19 symptoms
Please support your Practice team by complying with this guidance.
