NHS Highland's director of public health, Dr Tim Allison, recently underlined the importance of being vaccinated.

“We’ve had a good uptake of vaccination in NHS Highland which has given us protection across our community,” Dr Allison said.

“Getting high levels of vaccine coverage in all age groups is important for controlling Covid, both now and in the future.”
