New Venue for Vaccination Centre in Perth

The Perth Central Vaccination will be moving to a new home, from its location in the St John’s Shopping Centre, to the former Lakeland Store on St John Street.

The current vaccination clinic will close on Sunday, 4th of September with the new one opening the following day on the 5th of September.  

Karen Gunn, senior nurse for the vaccination service in Perth & Kinross, said, “We would like to thank everyone who helped set up and run the current centre as well as everyone who came in to see us for their vaccinations over the past eight months.  We look forward to welcoming our patients to our new Perth Central clinic for their winter vaccines.”

Sunday will be the last day of drop-ins across Tayside as attention is turned to the winter Covid and Flu vaccination programme. From Monday 5th of September for two weeks the winter programme will focus on care homes, home visits and appointments for health and social care staff.

After this, vaccinations will begin for the first priority group of the general public. Anyone over 80 will be issued a letter for appointments beginning on the 19th of September, before working through the rest of the group, including over 65s, those with certain health conditions, unpaid careers, immunosuppressed households and those aged 50 to 64.

Anyone attending the new Perth Central vaccination centre by car can use any of the nearby car parks in the city centre.  Blue Badge parking is available on South Street and there is drop-off access from King Edward Street with Shop Mobility located nearby at Canal Street.
