Ocean Terminal has a notice up saying that walk in is only available for first and second jabs. Appointments only for boosters.
Expect that’ll change soon given what’s happening. Festive season looking shaky..

Looks like the change to allow 40+ year olds to book a booster for anytime after 3 months from their second dose has now been formally implemented.

Isn't it odd that not so long ago they were saying it was only safe to take the booster jag six months after your second Covid vaccination, now they are saying it's OK after three months.

It wasn't about safety, it was about efficacy and the fact that waning of vaccine effectiveness starts to really kick in after five months.

I had a booster appointment for Sunday but I've just pitched up at Ingliston and they're going to do me now. It's pretty quiet

My wife was given an appointment at the pyramids at 7 on a Saturday night. What number do you call to change it?

I'd suggest she just turns up whenever suits her. It worked for me at Ingliston, they didn't even bat an eyelid when I asked if they'd fit me in. It seems like they're pretty flexible as long as you have an appointment booked at some point.

You can do it online, but if just 'turning up' remember to cancel the appointment so someone else can get it.

I think your details go intae the system and it cancels automatic. Lassie that took my details said I didnae need tae cancel mine when I asked her.

Yeah. That's similar to me, I had an appointment for Sunday but I'm starting a new job on Monday so didn't want to take a chance on being wiped out. The guy on the door asked if I had an appointment and when I told him I did but it's for Sunday he said just to tell the folk on the desk that I can't make the scheduled appointment. In the end it didn't matter, I just asked at the desk if they could squeeze me in and they did with no hassle at all. Got the Moderna.

Got my booster jag appointment at Musselburgh on Thursday afternoon.
Booked it online, don't think I need to take any ID or anything ?
Hope it's the Pfizer one...a few folk I know have had a bad reaction after the Moderna jag.

I was floored by AZ for a couple of days after the first 2 jags. I got a half measure of Moderna as my booster and was totally fine other than when I touched the jag area the next day it was a wee bit tender.
