14 Results are taken from questions run on behalf of Scottish Government on the YouGov online omnibus survey. The sample is demographically and geographically representative of adults 18+ across Scotland, with c.1000 responses each week. Fieldwork took place on 29-30 June with a total sample size of 1,001 adults. ‘Complete’ or ‘almost complete’ compliance refers to respondents who rated themselves 6 or 7 on a scale of 1-7 for the question: Thinking about ALL of the guidance on what to do and what not to do during the Coronavirus pandemic (including distancing, protection measures and all restrictions)...On a scale of 1-7, where 1 is 'Not at all' and 7 is 'Completely', to what extent do you feel you are following the regulations and guidance?

15 The difference between the Better and Worse scenarios: Both scenarios are based on current vaccine roll-out plans and efficacy assumptions. ‘Worse’ is based on a continuation in transmission rate from last week’s level. ‘Better’ is based on a reduction, falling to below the level from before last week’s increase, due to school holidays. In comparison to last week’s projections, the ‘Worse’ projection is lower and the ‘Better’ projection is higher. This is because we have more information and can therefore make a more precise estimate, narrowing the bounds of uncertainty somewhat. Nevertheless, the level of uncertainty remains high as we go into the summer holiday period

16 Total sample size on 29-30 June was 1,001 adults. Sample size for those who have not yet received their first vaccine was 68 adults. ‘Likely’ to be vaccinated refers to respondents who rated themselves 8 to 10 on a scale of 0-10 for the question: How likely or unlikely are you to be vaccinated for COVID-19 when a vaccine becomes available to you? (Please select a number between 0 and 10, where 0 means 'extremely unlikely' and 10 means 'extremely likely')
