The COVID-19 vaccination programme across Greater Glasgow and Clyde is being rolled out in accordance with the priority list agreed by the Scottish Government and the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI).
It will take some time to invite everyone, so please wait to be invited for your vaccination over the coming weeks.
To keep updated on who is currently being vaccinated and for other COVID-19 vaccine information, please visit www.nhsinform.scot/covid19vaccine.
If you think you should have been invited to your vaccination by now, you can access the missing invites form at www.nhsinform.scot/covid-19-vaccine/invitations-and-appointments/missing-appointment-details. Your enquiry will then be looked into. You will receive a communication within a couple of days.
People aged 16 and under
People under 16 are not currently being invited for vaccinations.
People aged 16-69 who are classified as clinically extremely vulnerable (CEV)
People in this group will have received a letter from Scotland’s Chief Medical Officer to advise them that they have been added to the shielding list. This will be either because they have a condition included in the shielding criteria agreed by the 4 Chief Medical Officers of the UK or because they have been added by their GP or hospital clinician based on their clinical judgement.
Although everyone (with the exception of carers and younger adults in long-stay nursing and residential care settings) within this group will fall into the list of health conditions further down the page, those in group 4 have been invited for their vaccination first because they have had more recent treatment, a more advanced condition, which makes them at highest risk of severe illness from COVID-19.
People who were on the shielding list by 1 February 2021 should have already been invited to their vaccination. Those people added to the shielding list after this date should await their invite in the near future.
People aged 16 to 64 years with underlying health conditions
People in this group who have underling health conditions which put them at higher risk of serious disease and mortality, who are not on the shielding list are being offered the vaccine. These people are being identified by a modified version of the flu vaccine list.
Younger adults in long-stay nursing and residential care settings
Many younger adults in residential care settings will be eligible for the coronavirus vaccine because they fall into one of the clinical risk groups (for example learning disabilities). Given the likely high risk of exposure in these settings, vaccination of the whole resident population is recommended.
Younger residents in care homes for the elderly will also be at a higher risk of exposure. Although they may be at lower risk of mortality than older residents, they will have been offered the coronavirus vaccine at the same time as other residents in care homes for older people.
Unpaid carers aged 16 to 64
People in this group are now beginning to be offered vaccination alongside adults with eligible at-risk health conditions (priority group 6). Those unpaid carers aged 65 and over should have been offered the vaccine earlier in priority groups 2 to 5.
The Scottish Government is using the definition for an unpaid carer as set out in the Carers (Scotland) Act 2016 however for the purposes of vaccinations this will not cover those who provide only remote care.
Some NHS boards are now beginning to call forward a limited number of carers identified through GP systems and social security data of those on relevant benefits, as vaccine supply allows. Carers do not have to do anything at this time if they have not received their appointment letter, are not on benefits or if they are not registered with their GP as a carer.
Further information will be available shortly about the forthcoming self-referral system for carers in Scotland which we expect to launch in early March. A dedicated national marketing campaign will be launched alongside the self-referral system to raise awareness and encourage carers to come forward.
People aged 80 and over
People in this age group are being contacted by their GP, who will give details of when and where they will receive their vaccination, which may be at the local GP surgery or community clinic.
People aged 75-79
People in the 75-79 age group are being contacted by their GP with details of when and where they will receive their vaccination, which may be at the local GP surgery or community clinic.
People aged 45-74
People aged 45 to 74 will receive a letter inviting them to attend one of 17 community vaccination clinic in our six local authority areas.
The clinic they will be invited to attend will in the majority of cases be the one closest to their home, and in some cases that may be in a neighbouring local authority area. For a list of vaccination clinics, see ‘Vaccination Clinics’ below.
People who have been shielding
People in the clinically extremely vulnerable (shielding group) are being contacted by their GP with details of when and where they will receive their vaccination, which may be at the local GP surgery or community clinic.
People who are housebound
People within this group are being contacted by their GP with details of when they will receive their vaccination. Vaccinations are being administered by district nursing teams within Health and Social Care Partnerships.
The locations of the 17 vaccination clinics in the NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde area have been agreed with local authorities and meet a range of criteria to allow vaccinations to be delivered safely and also to be able to accommodate significant numbers of people.
