The vaccination centre in Forfar has been closed after a man died inside the building on Wednesday afternoon.
Emergency services rushed to Reid Hall on Castle Street at around 3.10pm after the 76-year-old took unwell – but he was pronounced dead at the scene.
The public hall – which is currently being used a jag clinic – was closed for the rest of the day.
People with appointments were turned away while officers and paramedics attended the incident.
Police confirmed the death is not being treated as suspicious.
It is not known if the man was there for a vaccine.
Jabs available after closure
One witness whose appointment was cancelled on Wednesday afternoon reported seeing “an ambulance and two or three police cars” outside the building.
A member of staff told her the centre was closed due to an “incident”.
NHS Tayside closed the vaccination centre for the duration of Wednesday and urged those with appointments to return another day.
A statement released by the health board reads: “The vaccination centre at Reid Hall in Forfar is closed for the rest of the day due to unforeseen circumstances.
“If you have an appointment for this evening you can come along tomorrow or another day at a time that suits you and we will ensure you receive your vaccinations.
“Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.”
