Asked by: Jackson Carlaw, Eastwood, Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party
Date lodged: 23 September 2021

Question

To ask the Scottish Government how many people in each NHS board area will have been unable to attend a scheduled appointment to receive their second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine before 1 October 2021 due to them previously returning a positive COVID-19 test result.

Current status: Answered by Humza Yousaf on 18 October 2021


Answer

The requested level of data on individuals who Do Not Attend (DNA) vaccination appointments is not currently held. While we can show the number of people who did not attend a scheduled appointment, or who have cancelled or rescheduled, we don’t know all the reasons why they may have done so.

The Public Health Scotland COVID-19 Statistical Report published on 16 June 2021 contains information on DNAs from 1 Feb to 6 June 20201.
