Highlands and Islands MSP Emma Roddick, who has previously raised concern over the decision to move the Nairn booster vaccination programme to Inverness has today been assured by NHS Highland that some clinics will still take place in Nairn.

Roddick commented:

“It is my understanding that those who have been invited for their Spring boosters have been asked to attend vaccinations centres outside of Nairn, making vaccination inaccessible for many of my constituents”

“I was pleased however, to hear that clinics have and will continue to take place in Nairn over the coming months. Getting a booster vaccine is essential in tackling Coronavirus and therefore we need to make sure this is a possibility for everyone. Whilst this situation has caused both confusion and concern for many people living in Nairn, I am glad to hear that team at NHS Highland is working to solve it”.

Clinics have been planned for Nairn for the 18th May, 1st June and 29th June. Information will be updated on the NHS Highland website to reflect this in due course.
