COVID: Two in five Fifers have now had first vaccinations
Two in five people in Fife have received the first dose of a Covid-19 vaccine, figures reveal.
Public Health Scotland data shows 122,701 people across the region had received their first jag by March 3.
That was up 14% from 107,284 a week earlier.
It means 40% of people aged 16 and over in Fife have now received their first dose, using the latest Scottish population estimates.
The data up to March shows 1 million people aged 65 and over had received their first jab across Scotland – 97% of the age group.
Public Health Scotland's vaccination rollout began on December 8, with doses given first to care home staff and residents, frontline health workers and people aged 80 and over.
They are being followed by people aged 70 and over, those aged 65 and over and people who are clinically extremely vulnerable.
Phase one of the programme will end once everyone over 50 and the most vulnerable have received a jab.
