New way to access invitation for first jab - after new online service is launched today

A new online system will enable every adult in Scotland to register for their first jab – after being used successfully to book in unpaid carers and those between 18 and 29 years of age.

The Scottish Government said the new self-registration system was aimed at those who had not received a jab appointment or who missed their first jab for whatever reason.

It will also allow new arrivals to Scotland or those without an up-to-date address registered to get vaccinated.

Health Secretary Humza Yousaf said: “Whatever the reason anyone aged 18 or over has not received an appointment, we invite them to take up this opportunity to self-register as soon as possible.”
