We strongly advise that everyone over the age of 12, including those living with HIV take the COVID-19 vaccine.

NHS Scotland has confirmed that most people with HIV should now have been offered at least two doses of a COVID vaccine and offered either a third dose or a booster dose. In addition, everyone over the age of 12 with HIV will be offered another booster dose of the COVID vaccine along with seasonal 'flu vaccine in autumn 2022.

If you have not yet been offered the COVID vaccine, it may be because of the following reasons:

  • You are not currently registered with a GP
  • Your GP does not have your current address

If you have not yet been offered an appointment for a COVID-19 vaccine, please contact the National COVID-19 Vaccination Helpline on:
