Covid-19 Vaccination at Wester Hailes Medical Practice
Across Lothian, vaccination of priority groups of people is taking place at GP Practices.
If you or your relative or someone you care for is in these groups you / they will receive an invitation from us, either by letter or by phone to have your vaccination 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. Please be assured that our team are working tirelessly to ensure that all patients are offered a vaccination in a timely fashion and in line with the latest government guidance.
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. However, please note that invitations to mass vaccination centres are being administered nationally and are separate to 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.
We can assure you we are vaccinating as fast as vaccine supplies allow and everyone eligible for vaccination here will be invited to attend.
We are very grateful for your patience while you wait your turn.
For more information about the vaccination programme please see
