Vaccination Centres at FVC

NHS Forth Valley has set up COVID-19 vaccinations at our three main campuses in Alloa, Falkirk and Stirling.

The College will play a key role as Scotland ramps up its campaign to tackle the virus and vaccinate the communities of Forth Valley.

NHS Forth Valley will contact people to offer an appointment. Members of the public are advised not to attend the College without a vaccination appointment.   

You should contact NHS Forth Valley for help and advice with regards to your vaccination appointment.  Please note that the College does not have access to patient records regarding vaccination appointments.

Vaccination Centre FAQs

Vaccinations are due to start in Falkirk from Sunday 31 January 2021 and from mid-February in Alloa and Stirling.  This is planned to run through until May 2021, however, this may be subject to change.

 

If you have received an invitation to be vaccinated, please enter the relevant campus through the designated vaccination entrance at your allocated time slot. 

Vaccinations are due to take place from 8am – 8pm, 7 days per week, however this may be subject to change.

All three campuses have parking available, including accessible parking spaces.  You can find more information here.

Members of the public are asked to come on campus at their designated time – there will be a clearly marked waiting area, where physical distancing must be adhered too.

Those coming on campus to attend the vaccination centres will be required to use the main entrance at each campus. Therefore whilst the vaccination centres are in operation, staff and students should use the following entrances when coming on campus.

  • Alloa – Level 0 entrance (Staff can also gain access via the service yard entrance. Some groups may also obtain access through the fire door at the end of the level 1 teaching corridor with prior arrangement only)
  • Falkirk - North Car Park Entrance
  • Stirling (Access to workshops & Creative Industries) – Rear entrance
  • Stirling (Access to teaching block) – Fire door at far end of block

Unfortunately, our Alloa LRC will be temporarily unavailable to students wishing to access PCs or printing during this time. However, an alternative space will be made available for students to book in advance. Students looking to access a PC or printing should get in touch with the team through the Ask the LRC Teams channel or via learning@forthvalley.ac.uk.

Students and staff numbers on campus will be kept to a minimum during the current tier four restrictions.  As we move out of restrictions, this will be closely monitored by the  Leadership Management Team to ensure the safety of all campus users.

All areas being used for vaccination will be cordoned off and clear signage will be set up to ensure vaccination visitors know where to queue and how to enter and leave the college campuses.

We realise that staff and students may need to take alternative routes around campus to get to their designated areas but appreciate their support.

The College has robust safety measures in place and these must be adhered to at all times when on campus.  New signage is being installed to support the vaccination service and to direct members of the public.  All campus users are requested to use the hand-sanitiser on entering the campus.  A full risk assessment has been conducted and thee College has been working closely with NHS to ensure that the operation of the Vaccination Centres in all three campuses are safe for all our staff and users.

The NHS will manage all health and safety protocols for the vaccine administration.

NHS Forth Valley are responsible for the risk assessment for the vaccination process, however, the College has also carried out a risk assessment to ensure the safety of staff, students and visitors coming on campus.   If you would like a copy, please speak to your Line Manager or Curriculum Manager.   

All campus users/visitors are required to wear a face covering on campus, unless medically exempt.  

Anyone who currently has confirmed COVID-19 or COVID-19 symptoms should not come on campus under any circumstances – this includes those with a vaccination appointment. 

Please contact NHS Forth Valley in regards to any discussion or questions around your appointment.  The College does not have the ability to confirm or assign vaccination appointments.

Staff who are directly supporting the NHS to deliver the vaccination programme at FVC will be offered a vaccine. For all other campus users, we have measures in place to separate staff and students from NHS activity. If you are a Forth Valley resident you will receive an appointment direct from the NHS in line with their arrangements for your category.

If any member of staff or student has questions or concerns they should speak to their Line Manager or Curriculum Manager in the first instance or email bcg@forthvalley.ac.uk
