Online Portal Available for Autumn/Winter Flu and COVID Booster Vaccinations


An online portal is now available to allow people aged 50 to 59, unpaid carers who are 16 and over, and those aged 16 and over who are household contacts of immunosuppressed individuals to book their Autumn/Winter vaccination appointments.


The portal will provide an advance booking facility with appointments for dates running from late November through December, as vaccinations for earlier priority groups are being completed this month. Anyone in those earlier groups who has missed their appointment for whatever reason can also use the portal to book their vaccinations.


Those without online access, can book an appointment through the National Helpline 0800 030 8013.


Kenneth Gibson MSP said:


“The Autumn/Winter vaccination programme will see up to a total of 7.5 million flu jabs and COVID-19 booster vaccinations administered across Scotland.


“If you are eligible for a flu vaccination it is highly likely that you will also be eligible for a COVID-19 booster.


“Your appointment will see you offered both vaccinations at the same time for your convenience and to make best use of resources. You can check your eligibility at NHS Inform.


“If you are eligible, please use the portal to ensure maximum efficiency and secure an appointment that is convenient for you, or call the free helpline on 0800 030 8013.”


Please find the online portal here.
