Covid Vaccinations

Covid Booster Vaccination Clinics
The GP contract with the government changed a few years ago and GP practices are no longer the preferred delivery model for vaccinations. As NHS Highland has not fully implemented taking over vaccinations in our area, GP practices can still participate on an optional basis if they have capacity (you will find that in most other health boards in Scotland all vaccinations are already run by them and not GP practices and this has been the case for some time). So this means that some practices in Highland are still doing all their vaccinations, most are doing a small part only (certain age groups) and others who do not have capacity have stopped completely. Due to our move to the new hospital and taking on other clinical obligations we as a practice do not have capacity to run Covid booster vaccination clinics for our patients and NHS Highland will run these instead. They will be in contact with eligible patients directly about their Covid booster vaccination clinics in due course.

Vaccination Enquiry Hub  

A Vaccination Enquiry Hub has been established and is getting down to work. It is important to patients who are eligible for a booster should wait to be invited to clinics, rather than contact the hub about their appointment. 

 The hub’s role will include:  

    • Managing the phone line for public enquiries about clinics and vaccination queries  
    • Sharing clinic information with the public (drop-in clinics and appointed clinics) 
    • Giving patients clinic appointments once they have been invited

The Vaccination Enquiry Hub can be contacted on 01463 705531 or nhsh.covidvaccine@nhs.scot, 9:30am to 4:30pm, Monday to Friday. 


Vaccination Clinics

  • If you still wish to get a Covid vaccine (1st or 2nd dose) then there are walk-in clinics in Inverness you can attend. These clinics do not require an appointment and patients can arrive at any time during opening hours. By their very nature, you may have a short wait when you arrive, depending on demand.
  • Up-to-date information on these and other Board-run clinics is available on NHS Highland’s website: www.nhshighland.scot.nhs.uk/COVID19/Pages/Vaccination.
  • Please note that if you are attending for a second dose that there needs to be a gap of at least 8 weeks between a first and second dose of the vaccine.
