Covid-19 vaccine appointments

Staying healthy, safe and cared for is more important now than ever before. You are eligible for your covid-19 booster 12 weeks after your second dose. Pregnant women have been classed as a priority group and are being strongly encouraged to have a first, second and booster dose to protect themselves and their baby.

Go to www.nhsinform.scot/vaccinebooking to make an appointment. You can also call the National helpline on 0800 030 8013. If you want to find out more about the covid-19 boosters, or if you have questions, visit NHS Inform. 

You can also visit www.nhsinform.scot/vaccinebooking to make an appointment for your first and second dose of the covid-19 vaccine.

Keeping people safe and healthy is a priority, so before the jab is administered, a vaccinator will ask some questions to make sure it is safe to administer the vaccine. You can visit NHS Lothian Vaccine Hub for more information.

We encourage everyone wherever possible to make an appointment for a vaccine. However drop in facilities are available.

Please do not go to your appointment if you are feeling unwell with symptoms of covid-19, have recently tested positive for covid-19, or have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for or who has symptoms of covid-19.
