All adult residents on Fair Isle have been fully vaccinated against coronavirus.
The tiny island, situated between Shetland and Orkney, has had no Covid cases since the pandemic began a year ago.
With a population of just under 50, NHS Shetland decided to fully vaccinate islanders in one go, in a process dubbed ‘bundling’.
A plane carrying a small box of AstraZeneca was enough to give the entire population of Fair Isle their second dose.
Brian Chittick, of NHS Shetland, told Good Morning Scotland: “Fair Isle was one of those areas in the UK where there were no confirmed Covid cases, so we felt it was really important to maintain that as a statistic moving forward, so we were very keen that we went in and we undertook the vaccination programme to all those who were entitled in one go.”
Nurses Margaret Cooper and Kirsten Robson managed to give all residents their second jab in one session.
With the population now fully vaccinated, it is hoped that Fair Isle can soon return to normal life.
Kirsten Robson told GMS: “It’s been great because we’ve had ten days without a boat, so the boat managed to come in yesterday so we then had a boat and a full shop and now we have had the second vaccinations today, the sun is out and the lambs are coming.”
