COVID-19 vaccine appointments
Staying healthy, safe and cared for is more important now than ever before. If you’re eligible for this year’s COVID-19 booster and flu jab, you will be invited to an appointment, or asked to book an appointment through the NHS Scotland booking system. Please do not contact your GP or visit your local pharmacy to book your appointment.
Following advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI), the following groups will be offered an additional COVID-19 booster:
- residents in a care home for older adults and staff working in care homes for older adults
- frontline health and social care workers
- all adults aged 50 years and over
- those aged 5 to 49 years in a clinical risk group, including those who are pregnant
- those aged 5 to 49 years who are household contacts of people with immunosuppression
- carers aged 16-49 years
How to book, manage or cancel your appointment
You can book your vaccination online on NHS Inform. You can also call the National helpline on 0800 030 8013. If you or someone you care for is eligible for both the flu and COVID-19 booster vaccinations, please be aware that they will only need to book one appointment. The same username and password used previously for NHS Inform – for previous COVID-19 vaccinations – will enable you to log onto the system.
If you’ve lost or forgotten your username or password, you can create new ones by selecting the ‘recover username‘ or ‘forgotten your password‘ options.
If you’ve never received a unique username, you can sign up for one by using the ‘recover username‘ option.
If you want to find out more about the COVID-19 boosters, or if you have questions, visit NHS Inform.

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.
