ADULTS with underlying health conditions can be reassured that they will receive their COVID-19 vaccination appointment this month.

We are on course to have vaccinated the over 50s and 16-64 “at risk” group (cohort 6) by mid-April. 

This priority group  includes a large number of people. It will take some time to invite everyone, so please wait to be invited for your vaccination over the coming weeks.

Further information will be available shortly about the forthcoming Scottish Government self-referral system for unpaid carers and we encourage carers to come forward to receive their vaccination.

Alternatively, people without online access can call the National Vaccination Helpline on 0800 030 8013.

The mass rollout of the vaccine continues in line with national guidance and vaccine supply.
