The NHS has confirmed a Covid-19 outbreak at the first care home in Scotland to receive a vaccine against the virus.
Residents in Abercorn Care Home in Hamilton received their first jags on December 14.
A total of 52 people staying in the home received the Pfizer jab.
It is not known how many cases have been confirmed or if any of those inoculated are affected.
Ashley Goodfellow, NHS Lanarkshire consultant in public health, said: “NHS Lanarkshire’s Health Protection Team is currently managing an outbreak in Abercorn care home in Hamilton.
“We are working closely with the care home manager and have provided outbreak management and infection prevention and control advice and support to the home.
“NHS Lanarkshire’s Health Protection Team is in regular contact with all care homes which have an outbreak until they are resolved and formally declared over.
“We recognise this has been a difficult time for care home residents, their families and friends, and members of staff.”
A Scottish Government spokesperson said: “We are aware of the situation at Abercorn Care Home, which is currently being managed by NHS Lanarkshire’s Health Protection Team.
“As with other outbreaks, we expect the care home provider to keep residents and their families actively informed of the situation and the protection and prevention work under way.”
