According to the statement published this morning (22nd February) on the Scottish Government website https://www.gov.scot/news/next-stage-for-vaccine-programme/
People with underlying health conditions and unpaid carers are beginning to receive coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccinations.
Priority group 6 is one of the largest on the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) list.
The first to be invited will be people who have conditions which are included on both the JCVI priority list and the flu vaccine list. Although there is some overlap, the two lists are not exactly the same. They will be invited at the same time as unpaid carers who receive carers’ benefits or who have been identified by GPs.
Carers who do not receive carers benefits, and who have not been identified by GPs, will be asked to come forward to register for their vaccine at a later date through an online portal or the national helpline. Work is also ongoing to identify people with underlying conditions who are not on the modified flu vaccine list, and they will be invited shortly.
Anyone aged 70 or over who has not yet been invited for their vaccine should visit nhsinform.scot for further advice or call the national helpline on 0800 030 8013.
I know it's frustrating to be ready and waiting but it is on its way!
