Actress and singer Clare Grogan is set to receive her Covid-19 jab today. 

The Glasgow-born star thanked the NHS on Twitter ahead of the "big day". 

It comes as the Scottish Government is making good progress in the vaccination of the over-60s and has started to move onto those aged over 50. 

As of Friday morning, 1,717,672 people in Scotland had received their first dose of the vaccine. 

The Gregory's Girl star is the latest big name to receive the jag. 

We previously reported the Big Yin had received both doses of the vaccine much to the relief of his family.

Sir Billy Connolly joked after his appointment: “Wee jab – nae bother”.
