Vaccine drop-in clinics

You can attend drop-in clinics if you would like to get your first or second dose of the coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine. For example you:

  • only recently become a resident in Scotland
  • have become newly eligible by turning 12 years of age
  • didn't attend when invited earlier this year but would now like to get vaccinated
  • had your first dose and did not attend for your second dose (for example you may have moved address, moved countries or recently had coronavirus)

You may also be able to attend a drop-in clinic for your coronavirus booster dose if you're aged 18 years or over.

Drop-in clinics are not for flu or third primary dose (for people with a severely weakened immune system) vaccinations. If you are eligible for these, you will receive a vaccination invitation letter or be asked to self-register by your local health board.

If you want to be vaccinated as soon as possible

As well as drop-in clinics, your local health board may offer other open access services such as mobile vaccination clinics. You can find more information about drop-in clinics and other open access services on your local NHS health board website:

The information held on these sites is the responsibility of your NHS health board. Any questions or feedback you may have should be directed to that local NHS board.

If you want to plan ahead

You can arrange an appointment a few weeks in advance by contacting the national vaccination helpline on 0800 030 8013. If you are a new resident in Scotland, you can register online.
