From the Scottish Health Secretary on Good Mourning Scotland today:
Ms Freeman told BBC Radio’s Good Morning Scotland programme: “We intend that by the end of this month, the very beginning of February, we will have vaccinated all residents in care homes and staff, all front-line health and social care workers and all those aged 80 or over. So that’s just under 560,000. We’ve already vaccinated about 70% of people in care homes and about half of the health and social care workforce.
From the PM on Sky News today:
We’ve done about 23% of the elderly residents of care homes.
This suggests a very divergent strategy. We’ll see the tragic evidence in the statistics over the next month.
