DUNFERMLINE Athletic’s stadium, the Parkgate Centre in Rosyth and Dunfermline East Church are among 70 locations being established as vaccine centres in Fife.

The Scottish Government has published a full list of the sites it expects to use as distribution points for the vaccines it has bought from Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna and Oxford-AstraZeneca.

In Fife, there are two NHS vaccination centres within Queen Margaret Hospital and 11 community vaccine clinics, such as East End Park.

There will also be 57 local GP practices, including Oakley, Valleyfield, Crossgates, Kelty, Rosyth and Inverkeithing, as well as surgeries in Millhill, Bellyeoman, Linburn Road and Hospital Hill in Dunfermline, that will also administer the jab to communities.

Fifers have been advised to wait for a letter to arrive from the NHS advising them that they are eligible to get the vaccine.

Priority is being given to over-80s, residents and carers in care homes and frontline health and social care staff.

All Scots over the age of 50, and those between 16-64 with underlying health conditions are also in line to receive the vaccine before the rest of the general population.

Last week Steve Grimmond, chief executive of Fife Council, said preparations for the vaccination roll-out were progressing well.

He told the council’s policy and co-ordination committee on Thursday: “Work to accelerate the delivery of the vaccination programme is progressing: infrastructure across Fife for vaccination centres and local delivery are in place.”

NHS Fife said that, while specific location details are still to be finalised, they hope to be able to confirm them soon. 

Scott Garden, NHS Fife director of pharmacy, said: "Over recent weeks, NHS Fife have been assessing a wide range of potential venues across Fife for their suitability to host COVID-19 vaccination clinics.

"This process is almost complete and the details of these venues will be confirmed as soon as possible."
