The move is part of on-going efforts to vaccinate as many people as possible across the area this month.

Sessions at Forth Valley College’s campuses in Falkirk Alloa and Stirling will now run from 8.30am until 7.00pm from Monday until Sunday July 18.

NHS Forth Valley said anyone aged 18 or over who has not had their first vaccine, and anyone who has had their first jag at least nine weeks ago can also drop in for their second vaccine.
