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!
