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.

We are strictly bound by the rules on priority groups to be vaccinated set by the Scottish Government. The priority groups are:


Older care home residents and their carers*


80 years of age and over and Frontline health and social care workers


75 years of age and over


70 years of age and over and Clinically extremely vulnerable individuals (officially shielded patients)


65 years of age and over



16 – 64 years of age with underlying health conditions and at clinically higher risk of serious disease and mortality

Unpaid carers, including all adult carers and young carers aged 16 to 18 


60 years of age and over


55 years of age and over


50 years of age and over

We are currently working through the patients in priority group 6. If you fall under groups 1-5 and have not yet been contacted, please contact us.

For Patients in Groups 7 – 9

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. If you cannot get through on the supplied telephone number (01382 423108) try emailing

Group 7 are currently being appointed.

Group 8 will be appointed week commencing 22nd March

Group 9 will be appointed week commencing 29nd March. 

These letters will arrive in BLUE envelopes

 This is all the current information we have. We have no further information on patients 49 years and under so please do not contact the Health Centre.

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see or speak to a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
