From Monday 14 June, people aged 40 and over, who require a first or second dose of the Astra Zeneca vaccine, can drop-in to Gorebridge vaccination centre in the leisure centre.
No appointment will be necessary at the clinic for those in the 40 and over age group.
The move is part of a mass drop-in launch across NHS Lothian as part of the battle against Covid-19.
The Gorebridge drop-in clinic is open for two weeks, every day from Monday 14 June.
Drop-in clinics will launch initially at Lowland Hall, at the Royal Highland Centre, Ingliston and Pyramids Vaccination centre in Bathgate from Wednesday 9 June through to Sunday (June 13).
Starting from June 14, they will run at every mass centre in Lothian, including Gorebridge, except Lowland Hall.
Anyone over the age of 40, who has not yet had their first dose – for whatever reason – can attend the clinic without an appointment, while those who are waiting for their second dose can turn up as long as they received their first injection of the Astra Zeneca vaccine at least eight weeks before.
People will be seen on a first come first served basis, and the centres will run for 10 hours every day.
