NHS Highland has reached a new milestone after delivering more than 7,000 vaccines in a single day.

On Tuesday, 7,203 vaccines were delivered at vaccination centres across the Highlands and Argyll and Bute.

Nearly 6,600 people also stepped up to receive their boosters whilst almost 350 received their first dose and more than 260 turned out for their second jag.

The figures mark a new record for the Highland health board setting the biggest daily roll-out since the start of the vaccination programme.

The news come just two hours after NHS Highland closed their doors to their Invergordon vaccination clinic following an “excellent” turnout.
