COVID Vaccination Drop-In Clinics in East Lothian

Drop-in COVID vaccination clinics are continuing next week in Musselburgh, Tranent, Prestonpans and East Lothian Community Hospital in Haddington.

Anyone over 18, who has not yet had their first dose, can attend a drop-in clinic without an appointment. Those who are waiting for their second dose can turn up as long as they received their first injection of the COVID-19 vaccine at least eight weeks before.

The East Lothian Community Hospital in Haddington continues to be open for drop-in vaccinations every day, including weekends, from 8.30am-4.30pm. For information on how to get there, follow this link.

The schedule for mobile or pop-up clinics is as follows:

  • Monday, 19 July – Tesco car park, Musselburgh (mobile unit). Open 11am-7pm.
  • Tuesday, 20 July – Tesco car park, Musselburgh (mobile unit). Open 11am-7pm.
  • Wednesday, 21 July – George Johnstone Centre, Tranent (pop-up clinic). Open 9.30am-12pm and 12.30pm-3.30pm.
  • Thursday, 22 July – Prestongrange Church Hall, Prestonpans (pop-up clinic). Open 9.30am-12pm and 12.30pm-3.30pm.

People can be vaccinated at any of these locations – it doesn’t matter where someone lives or whether they are registered with a GP practice. Vaccines will be administered on a first come first served basis.

Further information about clinics, including availability elsewhere in the Lothians, can be found on the NHS Lothian website.

Local residents are also being encouraged to continue getting tested regularly – even if they have no symptoms of the virus. It’s possible to be infected, and pass it on, without showing any of the usual symptoms.

Options for getting tested in East Lothian include visiting the test centre at the former Stoneyhill Community Centre in Musselburgh, visiting a mobile testing unit, collecting from a community pharmacy or ordering online for home delivery. Further information is available on the East Lothian Council website.

Anti-Theft Bike Marking Event

Haddington Community Officers will be outside the Haddington Corn Exchange at their stall between 9am and 1pm on the 31 July 2021 to carry out bike marking.

Why not bring your bike along to have it securely marked for free and registered on the police approved Bike Register database?

With over 1 million bikes registered UK wide, Bike Register can reduce theft by up to 75% and, if your bike is stolen, registering it can make it easier to have the bike reunited with you if it is recovered.

See www.bikeregister.com for more info or come along with your bike to our bike marking event and speak to officers there.

    Mobile COVID Testing Unit

    Mobile Testing Unit Haddington

    In recent months, mobile COVID-19 testing units have been deployed to various locations around East Lothian. For the first time, a unit will be based and operating out of part of the John Muir House car park from Monday 31st May. Demand for car parking in the John Muir House campus has been lower than ‘normal’

    Testing will be available on both a walk-in and drive-through basis. This means that some parking spaces at the western side of the car park will be coned off on a temporary basis. The one-way system will continue to be in operation.

    The testing unit will be staffed by the Scottish Ambulance Service.

    More information about testing in East Lothian is available on the council website.

    In the past few weeks, you may have spotted some strange men combing over local fields with metal detectors. They are archaeology enthusiasts Mariusz and Dariusz who are absolutely dedicated to their search for times past. So far, they have uncovered all sorts of coins, horse trappings, musket balls, buttons and buckles. A couple of interesting photos of a Roman coin (AD130), a Russian coin (AD1772) and various assorted items are shown below. If you want to know what lies in YOUR field ( or even your back garden) please fill in the contact form.
