COVID-19 - Vaccination guidance

 Click here for the most up to date guidance regarding the COVID-19 vaccination or call the Scottish Covid-19 Vaccination Helpline on 0800 030 8013 between 8am and 8pm 7 days a week for assistance with general inquiries. 

Last updated 18/01/2021

The majority of patients aged 80+ have now been vaccinated.  Those who are housebound will be vaccinated in February.

We are awaiting further supplies of the vaccine to allow us to proceed with all of our 75-80 year old patients.  We expect this will be available in February.  The surgery team will contact you in February to arrange vaccination.  Please ensure you keep us up to date in any changes to your address and phone number.

When you are called you will be given a date and time for your appointment.  This will be only date available so you should do everything possible to attend on the date given.  This is due to restrictions with shelf life of the vaccine so unlike the flu clinics there is not a choice of dates and times available.

The receptionist will go through information you need on the phone but on the day of your appointment you should make your way to the rear of the building where you will be directed by staff.  You will have to remain in the building for 15 minutes after your vaccination.

  • Do not attend if you have any symptoms of COVID-19- fever, persistent cough, loss of or change to taste and smell
  • Do not attend if you are currently self isolating
  • Do not attend if you have had a positive COVID test in the last 4 weeks

On the day:

  • Arrive on time- not early or late so we can manage queues and traffic
  • Come alone unless you require a carer/assistance.  Whomever you bring will be required to wait outwith the building during the 15 minute period post vaccination so we can ensure social distancing as we have limited room inside the building.  Thereafter they can collect you to assist you out of the building.
  • You will only receive your COVID vaccination- no other health matters will be discussed and you will not be able to request prescriptions.
  • Wear loose clothing that allows easy access to your arm and where possible avoid wearing many layers (although we appreciate this is more difficult for our more elderly patients.)
  • Please adhere to social distancing at all time
