Second Vaccination Appointments
It’s really important to get both doses of the Covid-19 vaccination to provide longer term protection. You do not need to do anything to arrange your second dose. In response to the Delta variant which is now circulating across the UK, second doses which have not already been scheduled are being brought forward from 12 weeks to eight weeks across Scotland, where supply allows.
If you have not received details of your second vaccination appointment or you need to change it call the national Covid-19 Vaccination helpline on 0800 030 8013 (8am to 8pm, 7 days a week) or use the Vaccination Journey guide.
Get a Record of your Coronavirus (COVID-19) Vaccination Status

To help avoid overcrowding please try to avoid arriving for your appointment early and attend on your own, where possible. You should also wear loose fitting clothes to allow staff to administer the vaccine to your upper arm.

What to expect at your Covid-19 vaccination appointment
Please be aware of scams relating to the Coronavirus and Vaccine deployment. Remember, the NHS will never ask for payment or your bank details, arrive at your home unannounced to administer the vaccine or ask you to prove your identity by sending copies of personal documents such as your passport.

All adults in Scotland are included in the NHS Scotland Covid-19 vaccination programme, including asylum seekers and refugees, people who are currently homeless and members of travelling communities. Most people will receive an invite because they are registered with a GP practice however if you are not registered with a GP you can contact the National Covid-19 Vaccination Helpline on 0800 030 8013 and they will arrange for you be allocated a CHI number (a unique NHS number given to all patients in Scotland) so that you can receive an appointment with your local Health Board.
