All vaccine clinics across Aberdeenshire holding drop-ins for over 30s

People aged 30 and over in Aberdeenshire were given the opportunity to visit a vaccine clinic today to get their first dose.

Clinics across the region, which had additional available supply following previous quieter days, ran a drop-in service for anyone aged over 30.

Drop-in sessions offering the Pfizer vaccine were held in Stonehaven, Macduff, Peterhead, Fraserburgh, Banchory, Huntly and Inverurie until 7pm today.

With dozens of people quick to take up the opportunity for their first jab, all clinics reached full capacity shortly after the announcement in the early afternoon.

An Aberdeenshire Health and Social Care Partnership spokesman said: “Clinics were run on a drop-in basis across Aberdeenshire today, May 21, as we had available supply, following quieter than expected clinics in previous days.

“We were delighted with the response and thank everyone who took the opportunity to come along.

“We have run drop-in clinics across Grampian, depending on circumstances and available vaccine supply. These have worked well and are something we are considering running again in the future, as appropriate.

“We continue to make good progress through the vaccine programme with appointments being issued to those aged 30-39 in Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire”

There have already been drop-in vaccine clinics held in Seaton and Tillydrone in Aberdeen for those over the age of 40.

In Moray, drop-in clinics for anyone aged over 18 have been hosted over the past few weeks as the vaccination programme was accelerated in the region to combat a rise in cases.
