Army to help deliver vaccinations in Scotland

The British Army will help to deliver the next stage of the vaccine rollout in Scotland by helping to identify and prepare 80 coronavirus vaccination centres across Scotland – helping to swiftly offer the vaccine to residents in every corner of our United Kingdom.

  • As we continue to rapidly increase the scale of our vaccine programme, it is vital that people throughout the UK have easy access to the vaccine and vaccination sites. 
     
  • That is why the British Army are deploying their logistical expertise to help identify and set up vaccination sites for NHS Scotland. Taking advantage of our military expertise will allow NHS Scotland and local authorities to prioritise the rollout of the initial 900,000 vaccine doses. 
     
  • This will ensure that easy access to vaccination sites is provided across Scotland as we continue to rapidly deliver the vaccine to the most vulnerable people at unprecedented speed, with one of the fastest vaccine rollout programmes in the world.
