Moray MP Douglas Ross has again contacted NHS Grampian amid ongoing problems with the roll-out of the winter flu jab.
Mr Ross contacted the chief executive of the north-east health board on behalf of constituents who were sent an appointment letter for a flu vaccine this week.
The local residents had already been vaccinated two weeks prior, after receiving a similar invitation from NHS Grampian.
This follows other problems with the roll-out, when Moray residents complained of "confusion" surrounding when and where they would receive the vaccination, with letters sent out for appointment dates that had already passed.
The Scottish Conservative MP said the problems experienced in supplying doses to the public this year “do not bode well” for the mass vaccination operation expected to be carried out for Covid-19 in the coming months.
Scottish Conservative MP for Moray Douglas Ross said:
“The roll-out of the winter flu jab across Scotland this year has been a shambles.
“Here in Moray, we have suffered a series of problems. First, people received letters for appointment dates that had already past, now they are being offered appointments two weeks after being vaccinated.
“It is alarming that such mistakes are still being made when we should be in the final stages of this year’s programme.
“I have to say it does not bode well for next year, when we hope there will be a national roll-out of a Covid-19 vaccine.
“That will be an enormous logistical operation, and a huge challenge for our health service.
“The catalogue of problems experienced during this year’s flu jab programme must be ironed out before then so there is no repeat of this in future.”
