Covid-19 Vaccine Self-registration Portal for all

All adults in NHS Forth Valley who haven’t had their first Covid-19 appointment can self-register now.

Anyone aged 18 and over in NHS Forth Valley who has not received a first coronavirus (Covid-19) vaccination appointment or has missed their first dose for any reason is being invited to self-register for an appointment.

The portal, which opened on Monday 28th June 2021, will remain live until this initial vaccination programme ends in September 2021. The online system, which was used successfully to encourage unpaid carers and 18–29-year-olds to come forward, is now available to every adult in Scotland.

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.

Jillian Taylor, NHS Forth Valley’s Operational Lead for the Covid-19 vaccination programme, said: “We’d encourage those that haven’t had their first Covid-19 appointment details or been unable to attend their appointment for whatever reason to register online or by phone to get an appointment now. With new coronavirus variants in circulation, it’s really important that people get the vaccine to protect themselves, help get us out of this pandemic and back to doing the things we’ve all missed.”

Humza Yousaf, Cabinet Secretary for Health and Social Care, said: “We are absolutely delighted at the success of the roll-out in Scotland and the high-uptake among the adult population.

“I want to thank everyone who has been involved in the incredibly successful roll-out and of course, all those who have taken up their offer of a vaccine.

“Whatever the reason anyone aged 18 and over has not yet received a vaccination appointment, we invite them to take the opportunity to self-register as soon as possible. The self-registration system is open to all adults, whether you are registered with a GP or not, and will enable anyone who is new to Scotland or did not have an up-to-date registered home address to come forward.

“The evidence shows that vaccination is helping to protect people from serious health harms and there is no doubt it is vaccination which offers us the best route out of this pandemic.

“The vaccination programme is available for every adult in Scotland I urge everyone to take the opportunity to protect themselves, their families and their community.”
