All West Dunbartonshire residents aged 80 and over will receive their vaccination appointment from their GP surgery by the end of this week.

Practices are also beginning to contact those over 75 and clinically extremely vulnerable patients (who have been shielding during the pandemic) to schedule their vaccine appointments. 

There are 2 different processes in place, to ensure as many people can be vaccinated as quickly as possible. Like those over 80, those aged 75 to 79 and those on the shielding register will be called direct by their GP surgery to arrange an appointment.  Those aged 70 to 74 will receive a letter through the post, with an appointment at a local centre or via a central booking system.
