Covid Vaccinations

Vaccinations against COVID-19 are currently taking place within Dumfries and Galloway in the form of scheduled clinic appointments.


Anyone aged 16 plus who has yet to make an appointment for a first COVID-19 vaccination, or who has yet to receive a second more than eight weeks from their first, is encouraged to contact the local helpline by calling 01387 403090 between 9 am and 5 pm, Monday to Friday. Alternatively, email

First dose vaccinations: Anyone eligible can still secure a first dose COVID-19 vaccination by calling the local helpline on 01387 403090 from 9am to 5pm Mon to Fri or emailing to arrange an appointment. Drop-in clinics are not running at present. First dose vaccinations have now been offered to everyone in the eligible groups, including the youngest group, 12 to 15 years olds, via a schools-based programme.


 Second dose vaccinations: Anyone who is now at least eight weeks since their first dose vaccination can book their second by calling the local helpline on 01387 403090 from 9am to 5pm Mon to Fri or emailing to arrange an appointment. Drop-in clinics are not running at present.


Third dose vaccinations: These have been provided to people who have weakened immune systems, with details on appointments provided by letter.


Booster vaccinations: Booster jags are being provided to those identified as being eligible, at least 12 weeks following their second. In line with the prioritisation of groupings set out by the JCVI, these have now been offered to all residents and staff at care homes in the region, subject to any local restrictions due to COVID. Boosters are also being provided to health and social care workers, and are currently being provided to people aged 18 plus, unpaid Carers and household contacts of the immune-suppressed. As part of Scotland-wide moves, no appointment letters are planned for these people. Instead, all those in these next eligible groups need to now take action themselves – visiting the new national online portal to pick a location and timeslot for their COVID booster and/or flu vaccination. Visit or telephone 0800 030 8013. 



Although the surgery is open and managing as many, or more, patients than ever, we are still trying trying to limit footfall in the surgery to only those who have an appointment.


Please try not attend the surgery if you do not have an appointment - phone or use eConsult.


All prescriptions will be sent to your nominated chemist. Do not come to collect them from the surgery. Sick lines will be posted or emailed to you.

Once you have been given an appointment time then click HERE to log into the waiting room. It works via your internet browser in your computer or device. Unfortunately it does not work in Internet Explorer but does work in Chrome or Safari.


You can connect ahead of time to check that everything works by clicking on the link above - the system will test your connection speed, camera and mic.


You will need to give your name and a contact phone number and will then be directed to a virtual waiting room and the doctor or nurse will connect to you when they are free.
