AN Easter Ross medical practice says it has now finished its Covid-19 vaccination clinics and referred patients still due a booster or who have changed their minds about a jag to attend drop-in sessions elsewhere.

Tain and Fearn Area Medical Practice posted the information today.

It follows a drop-in session staged at the town's Duthac Centre yesterday.

It posted: "We have now finished our Covid clinics and have no more vaccines available.

"If you are still due a booster or if you have not previously received a vaccine but have now changed your mind please follow the link below for dates and times of the drop-in clinics in the NHS Highland area."

These include drop-in clinics at Smithon Church in Inverness and Wick Riverside Car Park.

16-17 year olds can now attend any of the drop-in clinics.

NHS Highland states: "Drop-in clinics do not require an appointment and you can arrive at any time during opening hours. Please wear loose clothing/short sleeves. Please be advised that you may have a short wait when you arrive depending on demand."

The clinics are also suitable for second doses though patients are advised they should leave an eight-week gap at least between first and second doses.
