NHS Highland have vaccinated 77.4% of over 16 year olds with their first dose, compared to a Scottish average of 76.9%. You can view progress on the national vaccination programme here.

It is their aim to invite 30-39 for their first vaccine in June and they aim to have 18-29 invited for their first vaccine in July. Appointment letters will be sent within the next few weeks.

People invited by letter (blue envelope) are being called via the national system. If they are unable to make this appointment they should let us know as soon as possible by contacting the national helpline number on 0800 038 8013.

People should also keep an eye on NHS Highland social media and their GP Practice’s social media for updates.

People aged 18-29 who have registered using the self-service portal may be invited by their GP practice to be vaccinated or, depending on which GP practice they are with, may receive a blue envelope inviting them to an appointment. In a small number of areas, we are also holding drop-in clinics which will be advertised in the local area as appropriate.
