Coronavirus (COVID-19): advice for people on the Highest Risk List
The COVID-19 Highest Risk List will end on 31 May 2022
We will end the Highest Risk List in Scotland on 31 May 2022. The success of the vaccination programme and the availability of new medicines to treat Covid-19 mean that the majority of people on the List are at no greater risk from Covid than the general population. We have strong clinical evidence to support this which our specialist medical advisers agree means we can end the List.
We will still be able to contact the people we need to if there’s any need for any different advice in the future.
If you’re on the Highest Risk List, the Chief Medical Officer will write to you soon with further details about the end of the list.
