Getting vaccinated against COVID-19 (27/05/22)

If you are aged 16 or 17 and not yet been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, you can still do so.

Everyone in Scotland aged 16 and over is eligible for two primary doses of the coronavirus vaccine, followed by a booster dose. You can book your appointment online or call 0800 030 8013, or you can visit a drop-in clinic.

It’s really important that you get vaccinated or, if you’ve only had one or two doses, complete your course and get your booster.  You can have your second dose or booster if it’s been 12 weeks since your previous dose.

By doing so you’re protecting yourself, your friends and loved ones, and your wider community. 

You can find the reliable, accurate information you need about the vaccine and how to get it, on NHS inform.  Or you can speak with your vaccinator, who will be able to answer any questions.

Eastfield Medical Practice is open for business (but not quite as usual)!

If you have any health-related problem which you think needs our help, please give us a call- but don’t just turn up.

You will be asked to leave a telephone number and some details of the reason for your call, and you will be called back shortly.

If necessary you can be seen by the doctor, but this may not be required.

Options include:

  • Your problem may be resolved on the phone, often good for sick lines or prescriptions.
  • Video consultation - easily done on your phone or tablet, and you can show skin rashes/ swellings etc.
  • Home monitoring - you may be advised to do home BP/ pulse/ weight checks.
  • Coming to the practice - we will try to make sure you do not spend much time in our waiting room. You could wait in your car, or outside, until the doctor or nurse is ready. You could even have your blood test or BP check while you are in your car. Our clinical staff will be wearing PPE- mask/ gloves/ apron.

Our staff are all healthy, and our building is clean. We are lucky to have such a spacious waiting area so we hope you will feel comfortable coming to see us if that is necessary.
