Today it’s the deliberate foregrounding one selected statistic that can be made negative and imply failure by the Health Secretary but, crucially, no context to help you see if it really is bad or not.
Yesterday, it was this platform for the Tories to misrepresent the closure of a mass vaccination centre, imply incompetence in the Health Secretary, stitch-up of Prof Bauld and ignore the move toward the same decentralised mobile centres announced by the UK Vaccines Minister days before.
The day before, it was one family’s tragedy presented as cruelty by the Health Secretary and, once more, ignore the very same thing in England.
There is a smelly trail of this anti-SNP propaganda, lying, going back for years now to a dead infant and a pigeon poo infection which killed no one.
Back the vaccines:
Almost a third of younger adults are still unvaccinated despite all over-18s being offered a first dose vaccine appointment by the end of Sunday. Health Secretary Humza Yousaf said some had re-arranged appointments and would receive the jab shortly. National clinical director Prof Jason Leitch said last week that uptake of the vaccine among 18-29 year olds had been slower than for other age groups.https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-57875256
How bad, good is this?
Note, they don’t say accurately that 68.4% have been jagged nor, of course that the figure for England is only 64.1% jabbed.
