Important Covid-19 Information
During the current pandemic, we require to minimise patients waiting in the pharmacy, so we ask that you attend on-time for your appointment (please do not attend earlier than the stated time). If you feel well, you may leave immediately after the vaccination, but please stay nearby the pharmacy for a few minutes in case you begin to feel unwell.
Please wear loose fitting clothing, and remove your outer jacket/coat before you enter the pharmacy. Long sleeve shirts should be avoided as they may not roll up the arm far enough to allow the vaccine to be administered safely.
Please ensure you wear a face covering at all times – this should tightly cover your nose and mouth. Please use hand sanitiser before entering the consultation room and avoid touching any surfaces where possible. Free of charge face masks and hand sanitiser is available should you require.
Special note regarding age groups: We offer the Quadrivalent egg-based flu vaccine. The NHS recommend different vaccines for certain age groups, e.g. children and those aged over 50 or 65 years, as some vaccines are more effective than others in specific age groups. Please check nhsinform.scot for more information.
Patients who can be vaccinated by the pharmacists has been confined to certain categories.
