Covid-19 Vaccination Programme
All priority groups, which includes everyone aged 50 and over, should now have received an invitation to their first Covid-19 vaccination appointment.
If you are in one of the priority groups and haven’t received your invitation letter, please complete the online form here or telephone the Covid-19 Vaccination Helpline on 0800 030 8013 (8am to 8pm, 7 days a week).
Rearranging your appointment
Please make every effort to attend your appointment. This allows us to continue to vaccinate everyone as quickly as possible. You can find out more on NHS Inform here.
However, if you are still unable to attend you can rearrange your appointment online at vacs.nhs.scot or phone the national Covid-19 Vaccination Helpline on 0800 030 8013.
It’s important to get both doses of the Covid-19 vaccination to protect yourself against coronavirus and reduce the chance of you becoming seriously unwell.
You do not need to do anything to arrange your second dose. However if you have not received details from NHS Scotland within 11 weeks please contact NHS Forth Valley’s Covid-19 vaccination helpline by emailing email@example.com or call 0800 130 3120.
If you provide vital face-to-face care and support for others and haven’t already been given an appointment, you can now register for the coronavirus vaccine here. You can also check if you are eligible for the vaccine by phoning the national Covid-19 Vaccination Helpline on 0800 030 8013.

Attending Your Appointment
Strict hygiene and infection control measures are in place at all local Covid-19 vaccination sessions to help keep you safe and protect local NHS staff. Please wear a face covering while travelling to, from and during your appointment and use the alcohol gel provided. 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.
If you have any problems getting to your appointment, please let us know via our local helpline 0800 130 3120.
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.
- Visit Trading Standards Scotland for more information.
Please do not contact your GP Practice to ask for a Covid vaccination passport or status certificate as they will not be able to provide this as international certification standards have not yet been agreed.
The Scottish Government is working to support the re-opening of international travel once it is safe to do so and is also working with the other UK Nations and with the World Health Organisation to discuss potential future Covid certification requirements for international travel. This may include the development of a technical solution that could allow people to access their Covid vaccination status directly.
