Covid-19 Vaccination at Wester Hailes Medical Practice  


Across Lothian, vaccination of the following groups of people is taking place at GP Practices:

  • People over 80 years of age
  • People aged  75-79 years of age
  • People who are clinically extremely vulnerable (shielding)


If you or your relative or someone you care for is in this groups you / they will receive an invitation  from us, either by letter or by phone to have your vaccination here at the practice. 


We understand that there is concern that some people in this cohort have not yet been invited for vaccination either at the practice or at home.


You may also be concerned that someone you know in a lower priority group has been invited to be vaccinated at a mass vaccination centre ahead of your own vaccination appointment.


Invitations to mass vaccination centres are being administered nationally and are separate the GP programme.  Those letters can be sent out quite far ahead of appointments.  Our contact with you will be much closer to the date of  your appointment.


However, we can assure you we are vaccinating as fast as vaccine supplies allow and everyone eligible for vaccination here will be invited to attend.


  • People over 80 will be vaccinated by 5 February 2021.
  • People aged 75-79 and people who are clinically extremely vulnerable will be vaccinated  by 15 February 2021


We are very grateful for your patience while you wait your turn.
