Anyone over the age of 18 who requires either a first or second dose (providing they received first vaccine more than eight weeks ago) can attend a drop-in clinic, you can find more information on venues here

Please do not contact us to ask for a Covid vaccination passport or status certificate as we are unable to provide one. You are able to get a record of your Covid vaccination status by visiting NHS Inform.

The Scottish Government requires General Practice and other healthcare settings to have different infection control and physical distancing guidance to other places such as hospitality and shops.
This is to help reduce the risk to practice staff and to people attending the practice who may be at greater risk if they catch Covid 19.
From 19 July 2021 (when we go to Level 0) the following rules still apply in General Practice:

 – wearing of face coverings by patients and the public (unless you are exempt)
– physical distancing of 2 metres in waiting rooms
– contact us by telephone in the first instance
– wearing of PPE by staff
– screening of all patients for Covid 19 symptoms

Please support us in General Practice by complying with this guidance.
