Please do not call the surgery if you have a general query regarding the COVID-19 vaccine. Instead please look on the NHS Inform Website or use the national helpline 0800 030 8013 which is open from 8am to 8pm, seven days a week.
The practice has now vaccinated with first dose the groups we have been asked to do. These are the over 80’s, over 75's and this over 16 in the Shielding Group. We have almost completed the second vaccination as well for these groups. We thank East Dunbartonshire HSCP for their assistance with arranging Milngavie Town Hall for this and helping coordinate the clinics as well the other local practices for working together so we can vaccinate all the patients in these categories in Bearsden & Milngavie.
We have only been given access to the AstraZeneca/Oxford Vaccine.
Vaccines to other age and at risk groups, based on age and underlying health conditions, has started and is being organised via the Health Board with no input from General Practice.
Covid Vaccination Passport/Status Certificates
Please see below national info we have been advised to add to our website:
- Please do not contact your GP Practice to ask for a Covid vaccination passport or status certificate – they will not be able to provide any standard document. International certification standards have not yet been agreed.
- The Scottish Government is working to support the re-opening of international travel once it is safe to do so. We are working with the other UK Nations and with the World Health Organisation to agree on potential future COVID certification requirements for international travel.
- As part of this, we are developing a technical solution that could allow people to access their Covid vaccination status directly
Many thanks for your ongoing patience and cooperation.
