Covid-19 Vaccinations

Help us to help you

Please do not telephone the surgery to ask about Covid-19 vaccinations. This leaves our phone lines and reception staff free to help patients who are unwell and require assistance.

Covid passports

You can get a copy of your vaccination status online or by calling the Covid-19 status helpline (0808 196 8565). Please do not contact the surgery with any Covid passport queries as we have no involvement in this.

Where and when will I get my Covid vaccination?

Housebound patients – all patients who are known to be housebound will be contacted by the Housebound vaccinator team at the Healthboard. We have been told that patients will be called the day before they will be visited for their vaccination. The GP surgery is not involved in organising vaccines for our housebound patients and we are grateful to patients and their relatives for not contacting us to ask about these.

All patients 75y and over – we are now able to confirm that all patients who will be aged 75 or over on 31st March 2021 have either received or been offered an appointment for the first dose of their Covid vaccine. We will be in touch with each patient to arrange their second dose when this is due, this will be given at the surgery.

All patients under 75, including those who are Shielding – these patients will receive a letter from the Healthboard inviting them to attend one of the mass vaccination centres locally. These are Johnstone Town Hall, Renfrew Leisure Centre and Paisley Lagoon Centre.

Further information

  • National Covid-19 vaccination helpline 0800 030 8013. Please contact this free helpline for any queries about Covid-19 vaccinations including information about appointments. If you have an appointment at one of the mass vaccination centres and want to re-arrange this, the helpline staff will do this for you.
  • Information online for patients in Greater Glasgow and Clyde (including Renfrewshire) about when and where you will get your vaccination
  • Please click here for general information online about the Covid-19 vaccinations, how they work and possible side effects.

Please be assured that we are doing everything we can to vaccinate patients as quickly and safely as possible.

Be prepared for your Covid-19 vaccination – what should I do now?

In order to receive the Covid-19 vaccination, it is essential that all patients (or their representative, where the patient is not able to understand the reasons for having the vaccine) have read the information booklet BEFORE they attend for their appointment. The booklet provides important information about how the vaccine works, why it is important, how it is given and common side effects. You should have been sent this booklet in the post but the booklet can be viewed online here.
