THREAD: Just want to share an absolute shocker from today.

@bwallace confirmed to me that the @scotgov have not taken up @DefenceHQ's offer to help roll out vaccines in Scotland.

You can watch him tell me about it here 👇
Just a bit of Highlands vaccine context for you:

One Doctor told me that her practice will not be in receipt of any Oxford jabs till end of Jan!

Even then, they'll be expecting 100 doses a week. Remember a 100 doses has to be administered twice, so really it's 50 people... 🤦‍♂️
The Highlands and Islands are being robbed of their chance to be vaccinated.

Our armed forces have done a great job in getting people in hard-to-reach areas tested during the pandemic and they could be helping us vaccinate people!
I really hope that independence politics is being kept out of covid-19 decision making and that every opportunity to vaccinate people in the Highlands and Islands is being taken not wasted.
With the help of @scotlibdems, I'm trying to get some light shed on this dire situation. Fired the below off to @JeaneF1MSP. Will keep you posted!

"Sadly, watching the Chancellor, once again without even acknowledging or mentioning the excluded left me and so many others bewildered, angry and upset"


"For some, the Government has stepped in, a financial safety net. But for so many others, our fellow taxpayers, they have been abandoned and left to fend for themselves"


"In the words of @AndyBurnhamGM, 'basic fairness demands a solution be found'"
