About this release

This weekly release by Public Health Scotland presents epidemiological information on respiratory infection activity, including COVID-19, across Scotland.

Main point

  • During the current Winter 2023 vaccination programme a total of 226,821 Influenza (Adult 18+), 20,818 Influenza (Children 6 months to 17 years) and 82,914 COVID-19 vaccines have been administered to the Scottish population since 4 September 2023.


As part of our continuous review of reporting, between 01 June and 05 October 2023, Public Health Scotland (PHS) will update the interactive dashboard, Vaccination Surveillance dashboard, COVID-19 open data platform, and respiratory open data platform on a weekly basis at 9.30am every Thursday and provide a narrative report once a month.

This aligns to the pre-pandemic approach for other respiratory pathogens, which typically follow a seasonal pattern with most cases occurring between October and May. A return to weekly publications will resume on 12 October 2023.

PHS will continue to monitor COVID-19 and other respiratory infection levels and publish additional narrative reports if necessary.

Further information

The next release of this publication will be 28 September 2023.
