Total meetings held relating to covid vaccine / restrictions

The request was partially successful.

Dear Scottish Government,

Could you provide a simple count of meetings held by First Minister, Depute First Minister on the following topics over December and first 9 days of January, I appreciate some may overlap:

1. Meetings where the content was primarily aimed at increasing frequency of vaccination to end user.

(This is not about one dose vs two dose, but rather about more people in a shorter time).

For avoidance of doubt this should be where 50% or more of the minute or agenda was set for the topic. A cursory glance is acceptable.

2. Meetings where the content was primarily aimed at increasing the potency of restrictions on individual freedoms.

Again the same 50% or more criteria should apply and a cursory glance is acceptable.

If you cannot provide a count, please provide the minute from the meetings where these topics are covered.

Yours faithfully,

Graeme
