COVID VACCINES

We are extremely busy arranging and carrying out Covid vaccinations at this time.

We have completed the majority of over 80s, however, if you are in this category and have not heard please call the us.

We have been contacting  those aged 74 and over plus the shielding patients for an appointment in the practice.

If you are aged 65-73 you will be invited to attend the Caird Hall.  Housebound patients are being vaccinated nu NHS Tayside. If you have an enquiry regarding this please call 01382 436335.

Finally, our telephones lines are extremely busy and we urge you not to call the practice if at all possible regarding your vaccinations.

Stay safe.

Travel Information

When you book your trip is when you should print off, complete and return to reception the questionnaire below then make an appointment for the travel clinic.  A minimum of six weeks before travelling is required to allow adequate time to assess all requirements including vaccinations and malaria tablets if required.

Some vaccinations are available on the NHS but non NHS vaccines and malaria tablets can be provided as a private service for the following charges:

Travel Service Costs

NOTE:

There are currently supply issues for some vaccines including Diphtheria/Tetanus/Polio and Hep A. We have been advised by Health Protection Scotland to prioritise high risk patients meantime until the issues resolve.
