NHS Fife has issued a statement following publication of Public Health Scotland data on the proportion of people vaccinated by Health Board area.  

A spokesperson for NHS Fife said:  

“The Public Health Scotland data published today is based on figures from 07 February 2021 and, therefore, does not reflect the significant progress made in the COVID-19 vaccination programme this week.  

"A total of 54,500 Fifers have now received their first vaccination, with the pace of the programme in Fife accelerating rapidly. Our vaccinating capacity has increased substantially this week with the opening of a further five large community vaccination clinics and this has led to record numbers of local people getting vaccinated, despite significant snowfall in the Kingdom over recent days. 

“Importantly, our vaccinating capacity will continue to increase this week as we move fully to 7-day operations at almost all of our clinics. Importantly, we remain on course to meet Scottish Government directives on COVID-19 vaccinations for those aged 65-79.”
