COVID-19 Vaccinations

As the roll out of COVID-19 Vaccinations continues, we respectfully request that patients do not contact the Practice for details of this programme, as COVID vaccination responsibility does not sit with us.

 

We have only been tasked with vaccinating those aged 75 or over and those who are shielding and we have completed the first vaccination of these groups in full.

 

We have no vaccines for anyone out with these groups as they are all being diverted to the mass vaccination centres. For further information please visit the NHS Inform website by clicking here or contact the helpline on 0800 030 8013 or email loth.covidvaccenquiries@nhslothian.scot.nhs.uk.

 

If you think you have been missed as part of the vaccination process you can fill out the form on the below link.

Unpaid carers can self-register for the COVID-19 vaccine

From Monday 15 March, unpaid carers will be able to self-register for the COVID-19 vaccine either online or through the vaccination help line. A new page has been added on the website for information on who qualifies as an unpaid carer and what the self-registration process is like. You can find that here.
