The Scottish Government Flu Vaccines and COVID-19 Vaccinations Delivery (FVCV) Programme was set up to ensure the readiness of Scotland for the implementation of an expansion to the flu vaccination programme and delivery of a COVID-19 vaccination, as per recommendations of the Joint Committee for Vaccinations and Immunisations (JCVI) and Scottish Government.
Public Health Scotland has a key role in contributing to monitoring and responding to COVID-19 vaccine safety, supporting the safe delivery of the COVID-19 Vaccination programme by working in partnership with our NHS Board colleagues and UK bodies such as the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). A Clinical Governance Group was established in November 2020 and is co-chaired by Public Health Scotland and The Scottish Government to provide national-level clinical leadership for the FVCV Programme. This includes overseeing effective mechanisms to monitor, evaluate and assure the clinical aspects of the wider COVID-19 programme.
These pages are regularly reviewed to contain accurate and timely information for people involved in delivering the COVID-19 vaccination programme.
