Second doses of the COVID-19 vaccines are now available for all eligible people over 18 years old in Scotland.
Vaccination clinics will remain open and anyone who has not yet received their vaccination, for whatever reason, is reminded that it is never too late to get vaccinated and is urged to go to a local drop-in clinic, or book a convenient appointment via NHS Inform.
Self- Registering Online
People in Scotland can register for their COVID-19 vaccination online if they:
- are 16 years old or over
- have not already had their first COVID-19 vaccination
- are registered with a GP surgery in Scotland
Eligible people in Shetland, Orkney and the Western Isles will be contacted by their health board.
If anyone eligible for the self-registration system (or who should have already received their vaccine) doesn’t have access to the internet or a smartphone, they can still register for SMS and email updates by calling the national COVID-19 Vaccination Helpline: 0800 030 8013.
(Please note: if you are 12 years old or over and are a household contact of a person who has had an immunosuppression letter, you should call the helpline number above.)
To register, please visit the NHS Scotland self-registration page.
Alternatively, for further information, visit the NHS Inform Scotland website.
Vaccine Drop-In Clinics
The Falkirk clinic runs 4pm – 7pm on Monday – Friday, and 8:30am – 7pm on Saturday and Sunday, from Units 1 and 2 at Falkirk Community Hospital (the old Falkirk Royal Infirmary), Westburn Avenue, Falkirk, FK1 5QE (directions linked for your convenience, via Google Maps).
If you are under 18 years old, you should ensure the clinic offers the Pfizer vaccine before attending. Please note that AstraZeneca and Pfizer vaccines are available at all clinics in Forth Valley, but the Moderna vaccine is currently only available at a number of clinics in NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde, NHS Lothian and NHS Grampian. People can attend vaccination clinics in other NHS board areas if this is more convenient.
