Assuming local, legal, workforce education and clinical governance has been completed i.e. staff are proficient in relation to the vaccines deployed , a transitional switch from BA4.5 to XBB.1.5 vaccines will take place in Scotland from September 25th.
At this point:

  • Clinics will immediately cease to use BA.4-5 and switch to XBB.1.5 vaccines.
  •  BA4-5 and XBB.1.5 vaccines should not be used simultaneously at clinics

In addition for those aged 18 and over who cannot receive an mRNA vaccine, Sanofi will be available.
