In light of claims that GP Practices in Fife have postponed vaccination appointments due to issues around vaccine supply, we would like to reassure local people that there has been no interruption in the supply and our vaccination programme is continuing at pace.
Vaccine supply into NHS Fife has been in line with nationally agreed levels. There have been no widespread delays in supply to GP practices, and there is no suggestion that we are in any way under-supplied. Supplies of the vaccines continue to increase and we are confident of meeting Scottish Government directives on vaccinating the people of Fife.
Significant progress has been made through our vaccination programme thus far and we are grateful to everyone involved in the local and national programmes, including our partners in General Practice who are currently vaccinating the over 80s population.
