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 an individual has not received an invite for their second vaccination, they should go online and access the NHS Inform appointment checker or call the National Helpline on 0800 030 8013.
People vaccinated in the staff clinics should email [email protected]
People aged 18 and over
Anyone aged 18 and over in Greater Glasgow and Clyde who has not received a first coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination appointment or has missed their first dose for any reason is being invited to self-register for an appointment.
The portal will be open from 8am on Monday 28 June until this initial vaccination programme ends in September.
The online system, which was used successfully to encourage unpaid carers and 18-29 year olds to come forward, will be available to every adult in Scotland.
Those who sign up will receive a text or email with details of their appointment which they can change if the time or location is unsuitable.
Please register at nhsinform.scot/vaccineregistration or call 0800 030 8013
People aged under 18
Only 16/17 year olds at high risk have been offered vaccination at this stage
People under 18 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.
Unpaid carers under 18
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.
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.
