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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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
