COVID Vaccinations

When will you get your vaccination

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).

Booster doses will be offered 168 days after your second COVID-19 vaccination.

NHS GGC will invite everyone who is due flu vaccination or a third Covid booster in line with the priority groups used during the first vaccination programme so it maybe a number of weeks before you receive your invitation.

If you also normally receive seasonal flu vaccination then your COVID booster will be given at the same time if possible.
To keep updated on who is currently being vaccinated and for other COVID-19 vaccine information, please visit www.nhsinform.scot/covid19vaccine.


People who are Immunosupressed 

The JCVI has recommended that individuals who are severely immunosuppressed aged 12 and over have a third Covid-19 vaccination.

This is because people who have a weakened immune system may not have had a full response to the vaccine and are therefore less protected than the wider population.

This includes some people who have received organ transplants, people with cancer and people with HIV
There must be at least eight weeks between the second and third dose of vaccine.

Those who fall into this group will be contacted by the board and offered an appointment at the earliest available opportunity.


Young People Ages 12-15 years

People aged between 12-15 years old will receive an invitation to attend for their Covid-19 vaccination based on the recommendations of the four UK Chief Medical Officers.

The decision to offer vaccination to 12-15 year olds takes account of a number of public health considerations including the ability for children to do extra-curricular activities such as social events and reduce the risk of further educational disruption.

All young people will receive a letter inviting them for vaccination.

Health Boards expect to begin to invite young people for appointments from the 4th October 2021. However, individuals are able to attend drop-in clinics across NHSGGC from the 22nd September. Only one dose will be offered at this point.

The JCVI will continue to monitor emerging evidence with regard to a second dose.


Other Priority Groups

Those eligible for a booster dose are

  • Those living in residential care homes for older adults
  • All adults aged 50 years or over
  • Frontline health and social care workers
  • All those aged 16-49 with underlying health conditions or who are carers
  • Adult household contacts of immunosuppressed individuals

A Covid-19 booster vaccination can be offered no sooner than six months after the second dose so appointment timing will take this into consideration and will influence when you are invited for your booster vaccination.


People who have not yet received their 1st or 2nd dose of their vaccination

For those individuals who declined their vaccination initially or missed their appointment and now wish to be vaccinated, can contact the national helpline on 0800 030 8013 or register online at: nhsinform.scot/vaccineregistration

People who have not yet received their second vaccination will still be able to do so. They will be invited to attend an appointment when their second dose is due or they can drop-in to a clinic. For appointments scheduled by letter or via using the drop-in service, individuals must be a minimum of 8 weeks after their first dose before they can receive their second.


Vaccination Clinics

The locations of the 19 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.
