Welcome to Taiglum Medical Practice
2022 Covid Vaccine Boosters
We have now used up all the vaccines we have and will not be getting further supplies. To see local arrangements for Covid vaccination please see www.nhsaaa.net. We understand that second booster vaccinations are currently being rolled out.
Shingles and Pneumococcal Vaccinations
We are again offering these vaccines after the Health Board decided they could not, as planned, offer the sevice. Shingles vaccines are available for any patient from 70-79 who has not been vaccinated. Pneumococcal vaccine is for any patient over aged 65 and again is a one-off vaccine which does not need boosters.
Covid Vaccine Confirmation Certificate for Travel
If you need proof of Covid vaccination for travel/football/nightclubs please download the NHS Scotland Covid Status app on your mobile phone. If you feel you are medically exempt from vaccination and need a vaccination exemption certificate please phone 0808 196 8565. Please be aware very few people in Scotland will have a certifiable medical exemption.
Covid Letters of Recovery and Fit to Fly Letters
Public Health Scotland has now advised that Health Boards and GP Practices should "no longer be issuing these to patients". The service, if necessary can be obtained from non-NHS Providers with more information available from the Fit For Travel website.
Facemask Exemption Information for Travel
As per Scottish Government guidelines exemption certifications are not required, however, should you need this for travel purposes for any Airline you can request a free face covering exemption card by phoning 0800 121 6240 or through the NHS Scotland exemption card website. Face Covering Exemption Card Scotland.
Please do not contact your GP Practice to ask for vaccination certificates or face covering exemption letters as these are not documents that your GP can provide.
If you are finding yourself really stuck with vaccines or certificates then a GP might be able to provide some advice and help even if we cannot provide the actual vaccine or certificate. We do understand that not everyone has typical needs and know that some patients with complex situations have found navigating some of the national systems very difficult.
