Drop-In Vaccination Centre Open in Pitlochry Today

Early results suggest Sputnik V Covid-19 vaccine is 92% effective, says Russia

NHS Tayside are running a drop-in vaccination centre in Pitlochry to give adults in Highland Perthshire the chance to get their vaccination.

People aged 18 years and more who haven’t had their first vaccine can drop in without an appointment to get their first Jab.

Otherwise, people who have had their first vaccine but have waited more than eight weeks for their second can also stop in by.

The centre is open from 11am this morning and runs until 5pm this afternoon at the Atholl Leisure Centre.

Now NHS Tayside have given out more than half a million jabs across Tayside.

NHS Tayside Director of Public Health, Dr Emma Fletcher said, “It’s fantastic to have reached this milestone of 500,000 vaccinations. Our vaccination teams have put in a huge effort to reach this stage and we are so grateful to everyone from NHS Tayside, the health and social care partnerships, our GP colleagues, local authority partners and community volunteers who have played a part in this.”
