Scheduled clinics

NHS Tayside will continue to run scheduled clinics. If you have an appointment please make every effort to attend or reschedule if you can't make it. You can check your appointment details at www.nhsinform.scot/covid19vaccineinvitations

Anyone over 16 can now also self-register for an appointment for their first vaccination at www.nhsinform.scot/vaccineregistration. Those who sign up will receive a text or email with details of their appointment which they can change if the time or location is unsuitable.

Children and young people aged 12 -15 years old will be offered a dose of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) vaccination from Monday 20 September. A dose of Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine will be offered to all children and young people aged 12-15 who are not already covered by existing advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) in a move to reduce the disruption caused to education by Covid-19.

This group will be offered their injections in drop-in clinics and community settings followed by each young person receiving a letter inviting them to attend a community clinic. Following the initial phase, vaccines will be offered in both communities and schools so that anyone who hasn’t been vaccinated but would like to be has the opportunity to take up the offer.

People who have had Covid-19 recently or are self-isolating

Anyone who has missed their vaccination appointment due to self-isolation can attend any drop-in clinic in mainland Scotland, regardless of where they are registered, or can rebook their appointment using the NHS Inform appointment checker.  If you don’t have online access, you can call the National Helpline on 0800 030 8013.

If you are a close contact of a positive case, and have completed the 10 day self-isolation period and not tested positive for coronavirus, you can attend for your vaccination on the 11th day.

If you have tested positive for coronavirus you must wait 28 days from testing positive to attend for vaccination.
