Problems With Appointing of 75+ for Second COVID Booster

NHS Dumfries and Galloway is aware of issues around appointing of over 75s for their second COVID-19 booster jags.  Across Scotland, a national appointing system is being employed for people within this age group.  


Locally, an issue has been identified where a small number of people have been asked to attend scheduled vaccination clinics some distance from their registered abode.


We apologise for the distress that this has caused, and are keen to promote that anyone who receives an appointment via the national system for a clinic some distance from where they live should get in touch with our local helpline number, calling 01387 403090 between 9 am and 5 pm, Monday to Friday. Alternatively, email [email protected]


We will seek to accommodate anyone in this situation within a clinic closer to their home.
