Non-urgent advice: COVID-19 Notice

Covid-19 Vaccination at Ormiston GP 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

·         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 from 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 as our clinic dates are arranged when each delivery of vaccine arrives.

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 as soon as possible.

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

For more information about the vaccination programme please see

Thank You,

Carers of East Lothian (CoEL) have informed us that they are receiving calls about the vaccine and that many carers are anxious about how and when they will be able to access the vaccine.
