THE eagerly-anticipated rollout of the coronavirus vaccination programme has started in GP practices across Ross-shire.

Amongst those receiving a dose of the vaccine this week at Alness/Invergordon Medical Group was Hugh Douglas (96).

NHS Highland said that practices will be in touch to offer appointments for vaccination and that "there is no need to contact your practice directly, they will contact you".

The over-80 age group is amongst the top priorities.

The Scottish Government is due to outline its plans for the wider vaccination programme today.
