Covid in Scotland: First vaccinations to start next week


People in Scotland will start to receive a Covid-19 vaccine from next week, Nicola Sturgeon has said.

The UK has become the first country in the world to approve the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine as being safe for use.

The first minister said it was expected the first jabs could be administered in Scotland on Tuesday 8 December.

She said this was “without a shadow of a doubt the best news we have heard since the pandemic started”.

Ms Sturgeon warned that “we are not at the end of this pandemic yet” and added that the vaccination programme would be a massive logistical exercise.

But she added: “Today does feel like it may well be the beginning of the end of this horrible experience”. US SPREAD GOOD NEWS!
