The East Lothian Community Hospital in Haddington continues to be open for drop-in vaccinations every day, including weekends, from 8.30am-4.30pm.
Anyone over 18, who has not yet had their first dose can attend a drop-in clinic without an appointment. Those who are waiting for their second dose can turn up as long as they received their first injection of the COVID-19 vaccine at least eight weeks before.
It doesn’t matter where someone lives or whether they are registered with a GP practice. Vaccines will be administered on a first come first served basis.
Local residents are also being encouraged to continue getting tested regularly – even if they have no symptoms of the virus. It’s possible to be infected, and pass it on, without showing any of the usual symptoms.
