Delivery of COVID-19 vaccination to adults over 18 years in Moray is to be accelerated. Additional COVID-19 Pfizer vaccination stock and the concerning, uncontrolled, sustained community transmission of COVID-19 has made this decision straightforward. All those aged 18 – 39 years in Moray who have not yet received their COVID-19 vaccination as part of the earlier priority cohort groups will be appointed from Saturday 8th May. During the first few days, we will phone to offer appointments before moving to letter appointments from the middle of next week.

The Fiona Elcock Vaccination Centre will have increased opening hours between 8am and 10pm with additional vaccination channels throughout the day. This increased activity will not affect the existing appointments at this centre or the delivery of second doses and vaccination of those 40 – 49 years across Grampian. All those aged 40 years and over should already have an appointment or will receive one soon. Working together to reduce the spread in Moray will reduce the risk of further spread to Aberdeenshire and Aberdeen. The slightly accelerated delivery in Moray will not delay the programme or negatively impact on the work planned throughout Grampian.
