The Scottish Government has confirmed that it will publish the daily figures related to the roll out of the COVID-19 vaccine. This follows Jackie Baillie’s exchange with Nicola Sturgeon during which she called on the government to begin publishing daily figures.
Jackie Baillie, MSP for Dumbarton Constituency, questioned the First Minister during a recalled session of the Scottish Parliament on Monday. She told the First Minister that, given it is possible to publish daily figures for COVID-19 cases, it is vital that daily information is also released on COVID-19 vaccinations.
Jackie Baillie MSP said:
“I am glad that the Scottish Government has taken on board my calls for the daily publication of COVID-19 vaccination figures.
“The government should now backdate this information and commit to publishing a detailed breakdown of how many people in each priority group has been vaccinated. Quicker progress must be made on securing vaccinations sites and vaccinators, including the contribution that community pharmacy teams can make.
“In the race against the virus, the Scottish Government must do everything possible to ensure that the vaccine wins.”
