Guidance
To assist with making your visit to the Vaccination Centre at the EICC as smooth as possible we ask that you follow the below guidance.

  • Please make sure you bring your appointment letter with you to your appointment.
  • Please attend your vaccination appointment alone, unless you need the assistance of a carer or have an appointment at the same time as someone else in your household.
  • Please do not arrive any more than two or three minutes before your appointment time. This may cause congestion and we will be unable to accommodate you until your allocated time slot.
  • Ensure you bring a face covering which should be worn on arrival (unless medically exempt – if so, you will be asked to provide confirmation of this).
  • Follow staff instructions and signs as a one-way system will be in operation. Staff will be present on your arrival to provide direction and assistance.
  • In the interest of security, no large bags, cases, rucksacks etc will be allowed into the building so please travel light (a small handbag is acceptable).
  • Please follow the instruction in your appointment letter.

 

The EICC is proud to be working alongside NHS Lothian to facilitate them in their work to tackle Covid-19.
