The Covid vaccination clinic will reopen tomorrow after being closed for two days

A vaccination clinic will reopen tomorrow after being closed for two days due to low bookings.

The clinic at the Citadel Leisure Center in Ayr will reopen on Saturday for residents to roll up their sleeves.

A drop-in will also be available for Ayr residents on Saturday with a walk-in clinic also open on Sunday at Troon’s Walker Hall.

The shots were scrapped Thursday and Friday with dozens of empty appointment slots.

Health officials say relevant appointments have been rescheduled for Saturday and clinics will take place next week.

Lynne McNiven, director of public health at NHS Ayrshire & Arran, said: “This decision was made because only a small number had booked into clinics and the venue is also holding vaccinations on January 12 and 15, allowing the postponement of relevant appointments.

“We apologize to everyone involved for any inconvenience caused.
