NHS Highland has arranged Covid vaccination sessions in Thurso next week and the week after.

The venue will be the town's Royal British Legion club on Tuesday, May 31, and Tuesday, June 7.

From 10am until 6pm on both dates there will be spring booster sessions for those 75 and over and the immunosuppressed, as well as those over the age of 12 who still require first, second or booster jabs.

These will be drop-in clinics, with no appointment necessary.

From 3.30pm until 5.30pm on both dates there will be appointment-only vaccination sessions for those aged five to 11 years. Those wishing to book should call the NHS Highland vaccination enquiry hub on 0800 032 0339.

Earlier this month NHS Highland's director of public health, Dr Tim Allison, 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.”

Full details of the vaccination programme can be found on the NHS Highland website.

Sessions are also scheduled at a number of locations in Sutherland, including Durness (May 25), Tongue (May 26), Armadale (May 26) and Melvich (May 27).
