The first COVID-19 vaccinations have been administered in Tayside. The first group to receive vaccinations were some of the immunisers who will be giving the vaccination to others, including other frontline staff working in high risk areas, such domestic staff, porters, nurses, allied health professionals and consultants.
Due to the logistics of storing the vaccine, the first vaccination clinics are taking place at Ninewells Hospital, which is the vaccine holding centre for Tayside, and will initially focus on frontline health and social care workers.
As yet there is no guidance regarding the schedule of vaccination beyond these groups.
Carnoustie Medical Group patients will be notified when they become eligible for vaccination. Please be patient while we await further information and guidance.
COVID-19 Vaccination information is available from NHS Inform COVID-19 vaccine pages.
We will post further details on our website and on Facebook when we receive updates.
