DROP-IN Covid-19 vaccinations will no longer be available at East Lothian Community Hospital, East Lothian Health and Social Care Partnership (ELHSCP) announced today.

ELHSCP announced on social media that from today (Monday), the hospital in Haddington will no longer offer drop-in Covid vaccination appointments and instead will focus on flu vaccinations and Covid booster jags.

A spokesperson said: "If you need your second Covid jab, you will receive an appointment at the correct time.

"We will be focusing on appointment-only flu jabs and Covid boosters."

East Lothian residents should now be able to receive their flu vaccinations in the county, after a previous issue with the national booking system saw many told to travel to Edinburgh instead.

The NHS National Services Scotland, which runs the booking system, has since resolved the problem.

Additional booking slots are being created in East Lothian for those affected.

Residents who have received a letter with an appointment at Ingliston can rearrange it for East Lothian Community Hospital in Haddington or Musselburgh Primary Care Centre by visiting bit.ly/3CPOYEz or calling 0300 790 6296.

Residents have been told not to phone their GP practice.
