NHS Ayrshire & Arran’s Director of Public Health, Lynne McNiven said:
“It’s not too late to get fully vaccinated – our vaccinators are ready to welcome you,
no matter which dose of the COVID-19 vaccine you are due. You don’t need
an appointment to attend a local drop-in clinic, just head along to the location that suits you best from the available options. As part of our efforts to make vaccination as convenient as possible, this week we have mobile vaccination units in various Ayrshire locations as part of our drop-in clinic offer.
“If you prefer, you can also book a slot, as we have plenty bookable capacity at our local vaccine clinics. Call the helpline on 0800 030 8013 to get a date in the diary to protect yourself against coronavirus. Don’t wait for a blue letter – attend a drop-in or make an appointment online as soon as possible.
“We know that after the recent JCVI recommendation, parents and carers are keen
to hear about the local rollout of vaccines for children aged 5 to 11 years old.
Preparations for this age group are well underway and we will be sharing details on
plans next week.”
All the vaccines licenced for use in the UK have been through the normal rigorous
steps to ensure their safety and efficacy before being rolled out to the public. When
you come for vaccination you will receive information about common side effects, as
well as the chance to discuss any concerns you might have with a member of the
vaccination team on the day.
