Scottish Labour has called for answers from the Scottish Government as the First Minister announced today that Sunday saw 9,628 vaccinations – the lowest number since daily vaccination figures have been published.
Scottish Labour has said the Scottish Government must show more ambition if it is to match the vaccine rates that other parts of the UK are achieving.
Jackie Baillie, MSP for Dumbarton Constituency, said:
“The First Minister insists the Scottish Government is reaching its vaccination targets but they have set the bar too low and now we have become the UK’s underachievers on rollout rates.
“With vaccinations slowing down, the Scottish Government needs to push ahead with a more effective plan that can speed up the pace. They must show more ambition and outline details for a full 24-hour vaccination rollout.
“If we are in race against the virus then we’re losing that race and it is the people of Scotland who are paying the price.”
