Due to a data coding error, this content was revised on 06 October 2022. The Flu and Covid-19 Vaccination data has now been corrected to include the Pfizer Bivalent vaccine which was rolled out at the end of September. The impact of this is that the overall total for Scotland should be 491,342 and not 414,819 as reported previously.
