One third of NHS Highland’s over-18 population has now had their first vaccinations against Covid.

The health authority says the vaccination programme is progressing well, with 87,698 having been given their first vaccination as of  February 15, covering 33 per cent of people aged 18 and above living in the Highlands and Argyll and Bute.

Care home residents received their first dose of the vaccine ahead of schedule and it is planned that all care homes recidents will be offered their second vaccination by the end of March.
