Stay at home if you have coronavirus symptoms
Now that a COVID vaccine is available in the UK arrangements are being made for those people who are at greatest risk to get the vaccine first. This includes:
- residents and staff in care homes
- people aged 80 and over (or will be by 31 March, 2021)
- frontline health and social care staff
GP Practices in Scotland have been asked to provide vaccination to those patients aged 80 years old and over who are able to come to the surgery. We are hoping to have our vaccination clinics in the practice for this group of patients only in January 2021, but this may be subject to change. Once we have been informed by the Health Board that the vaccine is available for this group of patients we will contact them directly with information about the clinics. Arrangements for those patients who are in this age group but are housebound will be made separately.
Vaccination for all other groups will begin on a priority basis to those most at risk as soon as the supply of vaccine becomes available.
These vaccinations will be provided from designated vaccination centers and NOT the practice. Please keep checking NHS inform or call the Scottish COVID vaccination helpline on 0800 030 8013 for further details and up-to-date information as it becomes available.
PLEASE DO NOT CALL THE PRACTICE TO ENQUIRE ABOUT COVID VACCINATION.
ALL INFOMATION THAT IS CURRENTLY AVAILABLE CAN BE FOUND AT NHS INFORM or by calling 0800 030 8013
