Scotland’s first Covid-19 vaccinations are under way at the Western General Hospital in Edinburgh.
Andrew Mencnarowski, a clinical lead at NHS Lothian, was among the first to receive the jab.
The Western General is one of 23 sites around Scotland which will act as vaccination centres for the priority groups.
Scotland’s deputy chief medical officer, Nicola Steedman, was at the Western General Hospital to see the rollout begin.
“The arrival of these first Covid-19 vaccines is a huge turning point for us all and will protect those most at risk from the serious effects of the virus, but we can’t relax yet,” she said.
“Even after the first people are vaccinated it will be important for now that everyone continues to follow the Scottish Government’s guidance for their area and, above all, to follow FACTS.”
