Vaccination – latest information

East Lothian Health and Social Care Partnership and NHS Lothian are delivering an extensive vaccination programme to protect the East Lothian population from COVID-19. Work is also underway on the delivery of the winter flu vaccination programme to eligible East Lothian residents. 

COVID-19 vaccine clinics

First and second doses of the COVID-19 vaccine continue to be available at clinics across the NHS Lothian area.

People over the age of 18 can get their vaccination at any of these clinics. Young people between the ages of 12 and 18 are also eligible, but not all clinics offer vaccination for these younger age groups, so please check the NHS Lothian website before attending.
