The coronavirus vaccine clinic will move to a larger venue from Monday (22 February), following a review of venues by NHS Grampian.
The facility, currently set up at Mosset Park (Forres Mechanics) will move to the Town Hall on the high street and will operate Monday to Friday 10am to 6pm.
Above and beyond
A spokesperson for NHS Grampian thanked everyone at Forres Mechanics for their tremendous support in providing the facility which has been used successfully as a vaccination clinic since the start of February.
“This is certainly no reflection on the support we have received from the chairman and the board who have gone above and beyond to assist us,” said the spokesperson.
“This is a mass vaccination programme aiming to vaccinate every adult in Grampian and designed to protect as many people in the north-east of Scotland as possible, as quickly as possible.
“We know that people are eager to get vaccinated and we would like to thank everyone for their patience as we work our way through the priority vaccination groups.”
Appointment letters are being sent out via the National Service Now system. Please do not contact your GP or the NHS for a vaccine; you will receive a letter when it is your turn.

The Rotary Club have also thanked all the volunteers who have helped with car parking at the football ground.
Rotarian Sheena Macgillivray said they had been overwhelmed with offers: “Forres Rotary Club and the British Red Cross, would like to thank all in the community who have come forward and volunteered to support at the Covid vaccination centre in Forres.
“The response has been fantastic, and due to this, we no longer need further volunteers at this stage. There may be a need in the future, and we will be in touch if this is the case, but for now, we would like to express our sincere thanks to all who have offered.”
