Patients registered at Aviemore and Grantown health centres will have a chance to get their Covid booster and flu vaccination earlier than expected.

NHS Highland is to hold its first drop-in clinic in the strath for the third dose of Covid vaccine and this year's flu safeguard.

So far only elderly patients and the clinically vulnerable have been able to their vaccinations in the local area.

Other residents have had to travel to Smithton by Inverness where other open drop-in sessions have been held by the health authority.

An NHS Highland spokeswoman said: "Patients registered with Grantown or Aviemore medical practices who are eligible for the Covid-19 booster and/or flu vaccination are invited to attend a drop-in clinic tomorrow (Thursday).

"As this is a drop-in clinic there may be some queuing involved.

"If someone has mobility difficulties that would make queuing difficult then they should please make themselves known to our staff at the clinic."

NHS Highland is reminding patients that the session is being held at the former Aviemore Health Centre at Muirton and not the new Badenoch and Strathspey Community Hospital.

The clinic will run from 9am until 4pm.
