Dumfries & Galloway Health & Social Care

Drop-in COVID-19 and flu vaccination clinics opening

THE DUMFRIES and Galloway winter flu and COVID vaccination effort has reached thousands of people in the region already – and from Monday 5th December anyone eligible for a vaccine will be able to get one without an appointment.

Drop-in vaccination clinics open across Dumfries and Galloway from Monday 5th December, to anyone eligible for a free vaccine because they are over 50, at risk due to a medical condition, a registered carer, or a health or social care worker.

The national booking portal is still open at https://vacs.nhs.scot/csp, and people are encouraged to use it to book an appointment if they can. Those turning up at a drop-in clinic may have to queue if the clinic is busy, and should dress warmly.

Public health consultant Dr Nigel Calvert says: “We have had great success with the winter flu vaccination and COVID-19 booster programmes so far, but there are still some people in the region who have not yet had the vaccines they’re entitled to.

“The vaccination programme has only a few weeks more to run, and we are hoping that the drop-in clinics will allow many more people to protect themselves now that winter is almost here.

“Flu and COVID-19 can be serious, especially for older people or those with other health conditions, and it’s best to prepare before the holidays. Even if you aren’t worried about the health risks to yourself, if you catch flu or COVID-19 you could pass it on to a relative or friend who is more at risk, and they could become seriously ill.

“So if you drop in to one of the clinics next week for your jags, you’ll have the best possible protection against flu and COVID-19 in time for Christmas.”
