Vaccinations on Mull

From the end of January supplies of the Astrazeneca Oxford vaccine will be arriving on Mull at a distribution rate of initially 200 doses per week. The vaccine will be administered in accordance with national guidance on the priority groups, starting with the over 80’s,  and will be delivered through the GP surgeries.  Patients will be contacted directly and given an appointment time to attend.  The Community nursing teams will visit the severely frail/housebound to deliver their vaccine. As vaccine supply continues the Priority groups will be called up in order. Please try to avoid calling he surgeries for more information.
To date Mull has been receiving the BioNTech/Pfizer vaccine in relatively small amounts and this has been given to frontline workers and some of the highly vulnerable.
Throughout Scotland the distribution of vaccines has been based on population density, which explains the perceived delay in our Island receiving supplies.
