A Black Isle medical practice is this week paving the way for another major Covid-19 vaccination session.

Fortrose Medical Practice has outlined plans for the 18-29 age group on its register.

It said: "We are vaccinating the 18-29s age group on Wednesday, June 30 in the evening, at the Free Church in Fortrose. You will receive a letter in the next few days with your appointment time.

"Please contact the surgery if you do not wish to have the vaccine so that we can update your records.

"You will be receiving the Pfizer vaccine as per current guidelines. After your vaccination you will need to sit for 15 minutes before you leave.

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."
