Scotland’s 12 to 15-year-olds have been able to book in for a vaccine since 20 September after Scottish Ministers accepted advice from the four UK chief medical officers (CMOs).
Health secretary Humza Yousaf thanked those running the vaccination programme while sharing the data from a coronavirus cases tracker page named “Travelling Tabby” on Twitter.
He said: “Thanks to our brilliant vaccinators for helping make our vaccination programme so successful.”
Mr Yousaf also shared the latest government data for the four UK nations with Scotland showing the lowest number of cases per 100,000.
He added: “Cases still too high but going in right direction with Scotland now having the lowest cases/per 100k in UK.
“No complacency, we continue to do everything we can to control transmission.”
A total of 18 coronavirus-linked deaths in Scotland have been recorded in the last 24 hours, two more than the day before.
The Scottish Government data confirmed 2,417 new positive cases, 210 fewer than Friday’s figures.
The figures from Friday show there were 31,935 new tests, of which 8.1% were positive, up from 7.9% the previous day.
A total of 943 people are in hospital with recently confirmed Covid-19, down 47 in 24 hours. Some 61 are in intensive care, down three.
The daily figures also show 4,246,101 people have received their first dose of a Covid-19 vaccination and 3,859,839 have received a second dose.
