Vaccination Centres

Our services are available for those travelling to and from Vaccination appointments at locations across Edinburgh and the Lothians.

NHS Lothian is delivering the vaccine through hospitals, community-based vaccination centres, GP practices and large-scale mass vaccination centres for high volumes of people. As most people will be asked to attend a mass vaccination centre, we have put together some information on how to get to these locations, as well as how to keep yourself and others safe whilst travelling.

Lothian has teamed up with NHS Lothian to deliver a series of pop-up COVID vaccination clinics. The initiative, which follows the success of the teenage booster bus, will see one of our buses converted into a mobile clinic to support the campaign.

Situated in key places within the community, the bus will enable the NHS Lothian team to carry out both first and second dose (provided they received the first vaccine more than eight weeks ago) vaccinations for those over the age of 18. No appointment is necessary, simply turn up at a time that is convenient to you

Moderna and Astra Zeneca vaccines will be available. Please note that Pfizer second dose vaccinations are not available at NHS Lothian’s pop-up clinics. This due to the way Pfizer needs to stored and handled. Second doses of Pfizer are still available at all mass vaccination clinics. 

This page will be updated as and when new clinic dates/locations become available. Please check back here for further information or on the NHS Lothian website.
