The latest data was released by Public Health Scotland and is based solely on the number of people who had received their first dose of the vaccine before January 24, 2021, not on those who had received both doses of the coronavirus vaccine.

Na h-Eileanan Siar is technically top of the list with the highest vaccination rate in terms of the number of people vaccinated per population, with 15.86 per cent having received their first dose.

However, the percentage is so high as the population is relatively small in comparison to other council areas.

3,564 people have been vaccinated in this area to date.

Glasgow City has the highest overall number of people vaccinated, with 35,918 residents having received their first dose.

Because of its size, this is only 6.75 per cent of the overall population of Glasgow City, which makes it number 25 out of 32 council areas on the vaccination rates list.

North Lanarkshire has the second highest total number, with 21,234 having received their first dose of the vaccine, but again because of a larger population, this is only 7.62 of the overall population.

Following Na h-Eileanan Siar in having high vaccination percentage rates is Dumfries and Galloway having vaccinated 14,550 people, 11.58 per cent of its population.

Next is Angus and then the Orkney Islands with vaccination rates of 11.09 per cent and 10.92 per cent.

Across the NHS Lothian health board area just 7.29 per cent of residents, 55,082 people in total, have received their first dose of the vaccine since the roll out began.

Broken down, the City of Edinburgh has vaccinated just 4.94 per cent of its population, which is 22,005 people in total.
