NHS Grampian has now administered 100,000 people with their first dose of Covid-19 vaccine.

The health board, which covers Moray, Aberdeenshire and Aberdeen, passed the total earlier today.

Katrina Morrison, the clinical lead nurse for Covid-19 vaccination, said: "The progress we have made in the vaccine programme to date is phenomenal and the product of an enormous team effort.

"On behalf of the planning team, I want to say an enormous thank you to all our vaccinators and all the support staff working alongside them."

In addition, amongst others, thanks are also being issued to pharmacies, community nurses, GP surgery staff and the armed forces, as well as council workers for keeping the roads clear.

Ms Morrison added: "Last, but not least, we also want to thank the people of Grampian who have shown great willingness to roll up their sleeve and get vaccinated.

"There is still a lot of hard work to be done.

"It’s our sincere hope that we can keep this performance going, but this is based on vaccine supply, recruitment of staff, and public support of the programme.

"Supply and staffing are things we as a board will monitor.

"The public can help us by coming out to get vaccinated and helping us all move beyond the pandemic."
