COVID-19 Vaccination Programme
We are very keen to keep our patients informed of where we are in the COVID vaccination programme but occasionally we fall behind due to the current workload.
Currently NHS Tayside are running Drop-in Vaccination Clinics
rules on priority groups to be vaccinated set by the Scottish Government and currently have finished all 1st vaccines to groups 1 - 6 with only a few patients still to be appointed and are rapidly working our way through the 2nd vaccines.
If you are an unpaid carer and have not yet been vaccinated you can click the link below to register for a vaccine.
Self-registration portal for unpaid carers
For Patients in Groups 7 – 9 and patients 49 years and under
You will be appointed by NHS Tayside using the national ServiceNow appointing system.
This system utilises patient postcodes and appoints them into one of their vaccination centres at Dewars, Pitlochry or Blairgowrie.
As with all new systems there may be a few patients who would prefer a different appointment, or appointment venue and the letter you receive will advise you how change this.
PLEASE WEAR A MASK WHEN ATTENDING THE HEALTH CENTRE, AND OTHER BUILDINGS IN NHS TAYSIDE.
