It was previously confirmed that all over 18s in Moray can expect to be offered the vaccine within the next two weeks.
An NHS spokeswomen said: “The programme in Moray has, of course, been accelerated in light of rising case numbers in the area.”
The vaccine announcement comes as Scotland prepares to move into level two on Monday, with Moray to find out tomorrow if it will be held back.
NHS Grampian asks individuals to rearrange or cancel their appointment if they cannot attend to minimise potential waste of vaccine and staff time.
They added: “Thank you so much to everyone for their support of the programme so far – we are incredibly grateful!”
