Winter Vaccinations 2022

Posted by: Monifa - Posted on:

The Scottish Government has announced that people aged 65 and over will be first in line for their winter vaccinations.

Texts, emails or letters with appointment times are being issued to those aged 65 and over in Lothian and will arrive no later than 13 September.

Appointments for all other priority groups will be made available as the programme progresses – people in those groups should wait until they are contacted or called forward.

If you’re not sure if your eligible for the flu vaccination and/or the COVID-19 winter booster, you can check this via NHS Inform. You can also contact the National Vaccination Helpline on 0800 030 8013 for assistance.

More information on the winter vaccination programme can be found at NHS Inform and on NHS Lothian’s website.
