Coronavirus Update

16 to 17 year olds – Drop in Vaccination Clinics

Drop-in vaccination clinics opened to 16 to 17-year-olds from Tuesday 10 August. They will only be able to attend clinics offering Pfizer, as this is the only vaccine currently licenced for use in the under-18 age group.

Drop-In Clinics 

Drop-in Covid-19 vaccination clinics are available to anyone in the following groups. No appointment needed just drop-in.

  • First vaccine: Anyone aged 18+ or due to turn 18 on or before 31st October 2021 
  • Second vaccine: Anyone who had their first vaccine 8 weeks ago or more

Drop in and scheduled vaccinations begin Saturday 14th August at the University of Stirling from 8:30am to 19:00pm, 7 days a week in the Pathfoot building.

For update information on local drop-in clinics, please visit https://nhsforthvalley.com/covid/covid-19-vaccination/

Please note, as the risk of COVID-19 is still at a substantial risk, we ask all patients to take into consideration face coverings and social distancing when in the surgery. 

In order to protect the health of both patients and healthcare workers, we would request that you only visit the health centre if absolutely necessary. We are currently unable to offer routine appointments.  

If you feel you need routine medical attention/advice, please phone us on 01786 463831 between 8am – 11am for a call back. A GP or nurse will call you back and arrange appropriate care.  Please do not email the practice with your medical issues but telephone for a call back in the first instance.

If you have a face-to-face appointment, please do not arrive early – try to come at your appointment time.

We are also suspending online booking and walk-ins at this time.
