COVID vaccines: 188,000 Fifers have now had their first jag
Three in five people in Fife have received the first dose of a Covid-19 vaccine, figures reveal.
Public Health Scotland data shows 188,558 Fifers had their first jag by March 31.
That was up 10% from 170,944 a week earlier.
It means 61% of people aged 16 and over in the region have now received their first dose.
The figures include 15,672 people who had their second dose, meaning 5% of over-16s have now had both jags.
Across Scotland, 2.5 million people received a jag by March 31 - 55% of the population, an increase of 9% from 2.3 million the week before.
The data also shows that 399,000 people across Scotland have received both jags.
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.
Phase one will end once everyone over 50 and the most vulnerable have received a jab.
