A BLACK Isle medical practice will be using a local church to vaccinate patients in the 30 to 39 age group later this month.

Fortrose Medical Practice will offer the jabs on the evening of Wednesday, June 23 at the Free Church.

Patients on its list will receive a letter in the next few days with an appointment time, it said today.

They will be receiving the Pfizer vaccine as per current guidelines and will be told that after the vaccination they will need to sit for 15 minutes before leaving.

It posted: "As a practice, we have been allocated enough vaccine for 70 per cent of those in this age group as it has been observed that uptake has been as low as 50 per cent for 18-39s across the UK. In view of this limited supply, if you wish to have the vaccine, please make every effort to attend the appointment offered. Storage requirements for the Pfizer vaccine also mean that we have strict time limits for its use."
