Coronavirus Vaccine Update from South Queensferry Medical Practice

🟡The practice will be delivering the first doses of vaccines to the over 80’s starting next week. This age category will be the only category to be vaccinated in the practice and we will only receive enough vaccines from NHS Scotland across the next few weeks to cover this population.

🟡Those below this age will receive their vaccines outwith the practice in central locations. Letters have been sent out by NHS Scotland which provide more information around this. There is also information on NHS inform.

‼️We will be contacting those patients in our over 80’s population directly via telephone or letter to arrange vaccination appointments. Therefore there is no need to contact us at the practice.‼️

‼️For those over 80’s who are housebound, the Community Vaccination team will be visiting homes to vaccinate in the near future. We will update information on this as soon as we receive it.‼️

🟡We have received a huge number of emails in the past week with queries and requests for vaccinations. Unfortunately we are unable to respond to all of these emails and we cannot vaccinate anyone below the age of 80 at the practice due to the supply as mentioned above.

🟡Thank you for your cooperation as we start off the vaccine campaign which will hopefully bring some normality in the coming months.
