To ask the Scottish Government how many dental nurses have been seconded to administer COVID-19 and flu vaccinations.

Answered by: Humza Yousaf 20 December 2021

A total of 22,635 dental staff are registered on the Vaccine Management Tool (VMT). This includes both dentists and dental nurses.

These staff would register voluntarily, as independent contractors, on the relevant staff bank of their health board, and book shifts via that system, which does not constitute secondment.
