Residents can feel safe attending their coronavirus vaccination appointments thanks to the efforts of Fife Council and NHS Fife teams tackling the wintry conditions.
Met Office Yellow and Amber Weather Warnings have been issued after significant snowfall and widespread ice was forecast for parts of Fife and much of the east coast over the coming days. However plans are well underway to ensure the community vaccination clinics can continue to operate despite the wintry weather conditions.
Fife Local Resilience Partnership, which represents the Kingdom’s key agencies is ensuring roads and pavements around Fife’s 13 community vaccine centres are accessible with snow cleared and footpaths gritted, to ensure people can attend their appointments safety.
Local people who can get to and from their vaccination clinic safely are encouraged to do so. Those who cannot attend due to the conditions can contact the Scottish COVID-19 vaccination helpline and booking service on 0800 030 8013 to reschedule their appointment.
