NHS Grampian has issued an apology to patients after letters with incomplete details were sent out for Covid-19 vaccination appointments.

Throughout Wednesday, February 10, it emerged that invites for the Forres and Keith clinics were issued for week commencing February 15 with incomplete location details.

An NHS spokeswoman confirmed appointments are currently being issued for Covid-19 vaccinations for people aged 70-74, 65-69, and those who are clinically extremely vulnerable.

She said: "We are assured letters being sent with incomplete addresses is an isolated incident. The national booking team have confirmed they have resolved the issue and are sending new appointment letters. We apologise for any inconvenience this has caused."

NHS Grampian is encouraging everyone who is offered the vaccination to get it.

Clinics are set up to be Covid-safe, with social distancing and staff wearing fluid resistant masks.

The spokeswoman added: "The feedback from clinics has been overwhelmingly positive, with people appreciating the measures we have in place.

"Getting the vaccine - which requires two doses - is our best way out of the pandemic. Anyone who wants to know more about the programme should consult our dedicated website: https://www.covidvaxgrampian.com/."
