· Please do not contact your GP Practice to ask for a Covid vaccination passport or status certificate – they will not be able to provide any standard document. International certification standards have not yet been agreed.
- The Scottish Government is working to support the re-opening of international travel once it is safe to do so. We are working with the other UK Nations and with the World Health Organisation to agree on potential future COVID certification requirements for international travel.
- As part of this, we are developing a technical solution that could allow people to access their Covid vaccination status directly
COVID 19 Vaccine information
‘We are delighted to have started our COVID19 Vaccination Clinics.
GPs have been asked to provide vaccines for those aged 80 and over, moving on to those aged 75 – 79 and then those who are shielding.
You can find out more about the priority groups by clicking here.
All other groups will be offered appointments via Health Board run services by letter.
The delivery of the vaccine is in small batches and we are not certain when these will arrive. As soon as we have supplies of vaccine our team will contact you to arrange an appointment.
There is no need for you to contact the practice as we will be in touch with those eligible. If you have any questions about the COVID Vaccine, please visit NHS Inform by clicking here, or call the national helpline 0800 030 8013 which is open from 8am to 8pm, seven days a week’

FLU CAMPAIGN 2020
Due to the Covid Pandemic our flu campaign will be different this year. We will not have an Open Flu day as in previous years.
We will be holding clinics every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon between 2pm and 5pm in November. These can be booked via reception on 0131 440 2043 BUT ONLY AFTER 11AM ANY DAY.
These clinics will initially be for patients over 65 or under 65 in an at risk category.
Roslin patients who were on the SHIELDING LIST will be vaccinated at a priority clinic at Eastfield Medical Practice. You will be sent a letter advising of the times and procedure for this. Housebound patients will be vaccinated by the Community Vaccination Team.
Due to corona virus/Covid 19 the practice is temporarily switching to a telephone triage system for all appointments.
