For patients under the age of 80 years of age, NHS Fife are delivering the Covid Vaccinations via centralised hubs. Appointment letters are currently being sent to patients aged 65 years and over, as well as those who are Shielding. The next group to be sent for will be those patients aged 16 years to 64 years with underlying health conditions which put them at higher risk of serious disease. Please do not phone the Practice if you have received your letter as we are not able to make or reschedule these appointments. Instead you should call 0800 030 8013 (available 8am to 8pm, 7 days a week). If you are an unpaid carer and aged 16 years to 64 years can use the online registration service. If you are concerned that you should have received a letter but it has not arrived, you can complete an online contact form via the NHS Inform website. There is also general patient information available at www.nhsinform.scot/covid19vaccine and www.nhsfife.org/covidvaccine/
Please do not contact the Practice to ask for a Covid Vaccination Passport or status certificate – we will not be able to provide any standard document. International certification standards have not yet been agreed. The Scottish Government is working to support the re-opening of international travel once it is safe to do so. They are working with the other UK Nations and with the World Health Organisation to agree on potential future COVID certification requirements for international travel. As part of this, they are developing a technical solution that could allow people to access their Covid Vaccination status directly.
