NHS Fife has now established community vaccination clinics across the region. Vaccination at clinics is by appointment only. Appointments will be provided from 9AM to 7.30PM on weekdays, and from 10AM to 4.30PM at weekend.
It is important that people do not contact the health board, their local GP practice, or any of the larger community clinics directly for a vaccination appointment – everyone will be contacted in due course and in line with JCVI guidance.
NHS Fife with the support of vaccination staff at the Templehall Community Vaccination clinic, have prepared this short video to help the public prepare for attending their appointment and to provide reassurance around safety measures in place at their clinics
COVID-19 vaccination scam circulating
NHS Fife are aware that some people are continuing to receive fraudulent emails, calls and text messages offering the COVID-19 vaccination. Criminals are using COVID-19 to target the public by tricking them to hand over cash or financial details. They are sending convincing looking text messages letting people know they are eligible for the vaccine or phoning people directly pretending to be from the NHS, or local pharmacy. The NHS will never ask for payment, bank details, arrive unannounced at a home to administer the vaccine, or ask someone to prove their identity by sending copies of personal documents.
