Mobile vaccination bus
NHS Tayside is also calling for anyone over 40 who has not had their first dose to come forward to receive an AstraZeneca vaccine.
This can also be offered to people of any age who are waiting on their second dose of AstraZeneca, having received their first dose eight weeks ago or longer.
Drop-ins for these people remain as above, with the exception of Blairgowrie Town Hall. Additional drop-in clinics for these groups have also been set up at the vaccination bus.
The vaccine bus is for the AstraZeneca vaccine only and will be running during the following times:
- Dens Park Ticket Office Car Park, Dundee on Wednesday June 16 from 10am until 6pm
- Stack Leisure Park, beside former cinema, Dundee on Thursday June 17 from 10am until 6pm
Dr Emma Fletcher, director of public health, previously stressed the importance of receiving both doses of the vaccine.
She said: “We strongly recommend that everyone gets the vaccine, particularly as we have seen a sharp increase in the number of cases in Tayside.
“It is also very important for people to get both doses of the vaccine for maximum protection.
“Please wear a face mask, keep two metres from others and meet outdoors where possible. This virus has not gone away so we need to continue to be cautious.”
The scheduled clinics for those aged 30 to 39 will continue, with the health board asking for those with booked appointments to ensure they attend or reschedule if necessary.
