A total of 2,372 new covid cases have been recorded across Scotland in the latest 24 hours.

More than 200 new Covid cases have been recorded in Grampian over the last 24 hours.

The health board accounted for the highest number of cases across the north of Scotland, with 209.

However, this is well down on last week’s high of 322 – and far below the cases recorded by NHS Greater Glasgow (601) and NHS Lothian (561).

According to the daily figures released by the Scottish Government today, there were 2,372 new cases of the virus recorded across the country in the last 24 hours – down 354 from Sunday.

NHS Highland reported 75 new cases, while the Western Isles and Shetland had two each. Orkney has none, for the second day in a row.

Vaccination roll-out

Across Scotland 11, 636 people received the first dose of their Covid-19 vaccine, taking the total to 3,869, 223.

Meanwhile, 11, 980 have received their second dose, meaning 2,774, 136 of adults are now fully vaccinated.

As of today, all mainland health boards are offering drop-in vaccinations. These are open to those who have missed an appointment, changed their minds about the vaccine, or those who don’t want to wait for their blue letter.

Announcing the change on Friday, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said: “We are trying to make this as easy and accessible as possible – you can turn up at a centre, or keep your scheduled appointment.”

The step-up in provisions came as Ms Sturgeon also announced £380million is being invested to help meet the costs of PPE, Test and Protect and the vaccination programme.

Drop in sessions will take place at the P&J Live on Friday and Saturday of this week, offering vaccinations to individuals waiting on the second dose of their vaccine.

Other sessions are also available for individuals over 18 waiting on their first dose of the vaccine.

⦁ Tuesday July 6, 11am to 6pm (last appointment at 5.30pm) St George’s Church, Hayton Road, Tillydrone.
