Hi, I had the first two doses of the vaccine in July and August so am due for the third and final one but I moved to Scotland in September and am unsure how to go about getting the jab.

At home it was given by the nurse at my GP's. However I phones my new GP here in Dundee and they dont do it, they gave me the number for the vaccine clinic at the hospital who told me they dont do it either and gave me the location of a community pharmacy. I went there and they told me they didnt have anyone trained to do it so basically after three attempts I'm back to square one.

It was due on the 18th on january so my question is, A) how do I get the vaccine? B) will they want proof of the other 2 jabs and my NHS status? and 3) Does it matter when I get it?

Could you travel to England for it?

I don't think it matters if you get it late, only that it's been at least a month (or whatever, can't remember) since the last one. My last one was a couple of weeks late, maybe more.

I guess just phone around places in areas near you. Somewhere must do it!

Tried Ninewells? I'm not sure, I got mine whilst at school.

If you're familiar with The Corner sexual health clinic in the city centre, then you should ask them. They know everything about this stuff. My mum works there, I'm constantly fed this information. :yes:

You know where Gregg's is on Castle Street? The one between KFC and the bank? You basically walk right down that street, past Sally's salon services and it's on the corner at the bottom, dark green building, pretty hard to miss.
