The centre, named after an immunisation nurse who died suddenly in 2020, will close for the last time on May 31 next week.

The new ‘Moray Vaccination Centre’, as it will be known, will open at 9c Southfield Drive, Elgin, IV30 6GR on June 10.

Appointments will not be available between May 31 and June 10 but outreach clinics, taking place in Forres and Buckie, will go ahead as normal.

Any appointments booked for the old centre between those dates have been rescheduled.

Margaret Wickham, vaccination team lead in Moray, said: “The centre has been an excellent base for us since January 2021.

“However, as we have moved away from mass vaccination programmes, and into more targeted schemes, the time has come to move.

“The move means the time is also right to change the name of the centre to simply the Moray Vaccination Centre.

"Although the centre will no longer carry the name of our colleague Fiona, she continues to be remembered as a wonderful nurse and friend.”

Liz Morton, who also works as a team lead, added: “We are working hard to make the move as smooth as possible.

“If anyone has any queries about their vaccination, or is concerned their appointment hasn’t been rescheduled, I’d ask them to ring 01224 555 333 or pop into the centre.”
