The clinic at the Kingdom Centre has been in use since April 2021 after taking over the vacant former Argos store. The Glenrothes centre was one of a number of mass vaccination clinics established across Fife to support the initial roll-out of the COVID-19 vaccination programme.

The new permanent vaccination clinic at Pitteuchar Health Centre will open on July 10 2024.

Considerable building works are underway to convert an existing area of the health centre to ensure it provides as an appropriate and effective clinical environment.

The new permanent clinic will offer immunisation against flu and COVID-19 as well as other conditions like shingles, pneumococcal and the full range of children’s immunisations. The new site will also provide a permanent base for vaccination staff working in Glenrothes and the surrounding area.

As well as providing considerable on-site parking at the health centre and the nearby Glamis Centre shopping precinct, the new clinic is also on the main Glenrothes to Kirkcaldy bus route and is wheelchair accessible. 

Clinical Services Manager for Fife’s Immunisation Programme, Karen Nolan, said: “I’m pleased that we will shortly be able to settle into new a permanent home within Pitteuchar Health Centre, which should provide real benefits for both patients and operationally.

“Our previous clinic within the Kingdom Centre proved to be hugely important in helping us to vaccinate tens of thousands of people in Glenrothes and the surrounding area against COVID-19 initially, as well as a range of conditions in the time since.

“The creation of a new, bespoke clinic within Pitteuchar Health Centre will not only provide a more suitable clinical environment for patients, but the facility is also considerably more accessible for wheelchair users.

“It remains as important as ever to keep up-to-date with our vaccinations and the new permanent clinic in Pitteuchar will help us to continue to protect local people against a wide range of conditions.”
