Health bosses have urged any East Renfrewshire residents who are eligible for the Covid-19 spring booster and have not yet come forward to get vaccinated as a matter of urgency.

The additional jabs have been offered to people aged 75 or over, as well as all those aged over 12 who are immunosuppressed, with clinics operating since early March.

Anyone in these groups who has not yet come forward can book online or call the vaccination helpline to make an appointment.

A drop-in clinic will also be held at the Carmichael Hall, in Giffnock, on Saturday, June 25, from 10am until 7pm.

Dr Emilia Crighton, deputy director for public health at NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, said: “Covid-19 continues to circulate and it remains crucial that those most at risk of severe effects from the virus protect themselves by getting their spring booster vaccination.

"Immunity from the vaccine wanes over time and the booster provides important additional protection.

“I’d urge anyone aged 75 or over, or anyone aged 12 or over who is severely immunosuppressed, to come forward for their spring booster before the end of June if they haven’t already done so.

“If you have missed yours for any reason, you can rearrange it online at NHS Inform or by calling the helpline on 0800 030 8013 seven days a week, between 8am and 8pm.”
