COVID-19 vaccination for unpaid carers

COVID-19 vaccination for unpaid carers

Getting an appointment

If you are an unpaid carer aged 16 and over you can book a coronavirus vaccine booster and flu vaccine online.

You can check if you already have an appointment in the system by logging into: https://vacs.nhs.scot/csp

If you can’t remember your username, you can recover that using: https://vacs.nhs.scot/csp?id=recover_username

If there is no appointment showing on the system already, then you can use the online booking system at www.nhsinform.scot/carersregister.

NHS Scotland recommend that you book an appointment for 24 weeks after your second coronavirus dose so that you can have your flu and booster dose in one appointment. If you can’t find a date, venue and time that suits, visit the site again later as new clinics are being added daily. The national vaccination helpline will be unable to offer alternative appointments as they use the same online booking system.

If you have any issues accessing the online booking system, call the vaccine helpline on 0800 030 8013

We are normally open Monday to Friday from 8.30am to 5.00 pm, but appointments (by phone, in person or online) out with these hours can be arranged. Currently mail is not being picked up from the office on a regular basis so if possible please email or phone us. During evenings and weekends, if you or someone you know requires urgent social work support, please call 0800 811 505.
