The Covid booster and Flu vaccine will NOT be provided by GP Practices - these will be provided by the NHS via vaccination clinics. Letters will be sent in September/October onwards to all patients regarding appointments, including housebound patients who should contact the helpline number in their appointment letter. Please do not contact the GP Practice regarding these appointments as we have no control or input with regards to these clinics.

A vaccination status letter can be downloaded from NHS Inform (https://www.nhsinform.scot/covid19status) or, for people not online, they can requested in the post via a Freephone Covid Status Helpline: 0808 196 8565. If you have received any of vaccine abroad you must use the "Contact" function on the website to provide with details of the vaccine received - arm, batch number, make of vaccine and date given.

Please note that you should not request your vaccine status information from your GP.

Patients who receive their vaccine outwith the UK will have to use whatever certification they are provided with from that country as proof of vaccination as it cannot be added to the NHS UK status letter or Covid app.

Information (from 26 April) on how to order or collect Lateral Flow Tests is on the Scottish Government’s website.  Alternatively a test can be booked/arranged at the asymptomatic test facilities across NHSGGC
