Ms Freeman said the Scottish Government “fully expected” to offer first doses of the coronavirus vaccine to the remaining priority groups by mid April, with increased supply of the vaccine allowing around 800,000 people to be vaccinated over the next two weeks.
Official figures show that 1,844,636 people have received their first dose of a coronavirus vaccine since the start of the rollout, up 18,836 from yesterday.
A further 149,409 have now also received their second dose.
