A “mass vaccination” programme is being planned for Scotland in mid-December, according to a leaked email.
A memo has been uncovered by the Sunday Mail that relates to the roll out of an anticipated nationwide Covid-19 inoculation schedule in just six weeks time.
The document explains it’s “the most important public health goal in our lifetimes”.
It’s also understood the Scottish NHS has already awarded a contract for supply of refrigeration equipment to store the vaccine when it becomes available.
The email sent by NHS Lothian director David Small to Health and Social Care Partnership (HSCP) members in different local authority areas, outlines the scale of the operation required.
It explains: “Timescales are uncertain, but we are working to an assumption that a vaccine will be available from mid-December 2020.
“This will be a mass vaccination programme to achieve the most important public health goal in our lifetimes.
“We would like to meet with HSCP and council leads in each area to brief you on the likely shape of the programme, discuss delivery options and agree how we can work together to achieve success.
“Given the tight timescale I hope you will be able to meet us as early as possible.”
NHS’s National Services Scotland signed a deal with an English firm to buy fridges to keep the Covid-19 vaccine.
