According to the Herald, ‘The Army‘ is being drafted in to help with Scotland’s vaccination roll-out this week. More than 60 members of the armed forces will be deployed to NHS Lothian and NHS Lanarkshire as part of ‘Operation Rescript’ for up to five weeks.
More than 60? 5 weeks? Wow! We only have 5 500 of our own full-time vaccinators so that will make a big difference.
The Scottish Army was not available for comment.
‘A written answer, as of a Roman emperor or a pope, to a query or petition in writing.’
So the Scottish Government petitions the British Army for help (did they?) and they send 60?
Operation Rescript involves up to 23 000 personnel.
