HOW WILL I BE CONTACTED

People should wait for NHS Scotland to contact them with details of their appointment, or prompt to book. Depending on their selected communication preferences, this will be by email, text, or by post in a white, NHS Scotland branded envelope, which replaces the blue envelopes used previously.

Invitations will include either a timed appointment or instructions to book an appointment.

Appointments can be booked or rescheduled via the online portal or by calling the National Vaccination Helpline on 0800 030 8013.

The winter programme will aim to complete most vaccinations by early December, but the programme will run until 31 March 2024.
