The Scottish Government has confirmed that three people have died from coronavirus in the last 24 hours.
The latest figures, released on Sunday, also show that 1,034 new cases have been identified overnight.
The total number of positive cases since the pandemic started now stands at 344,158.
It means the death toll since last March – of people who first tested positive for the virus within the previous 28 days – sits at 7,930.
There are currently 442 people in hospital confirmed to have the virus with 62 requiring intensive care treatment.
4,011,060 people have received their first vaccination with 3,197,899 having their second jab.
Meanwhile, government officials also announced that around 40,000 vulnerable young people, aged between 12 and 1, are set to be offered the vaccine by the end of August.
The group of youngsters have been identified by the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) and include those with Down’s Syndrome and learning difficulties.
Health Secretary Humza Yousaf said: "In line with the latest JCVI advice we will now be offering Covid-19 vaccinations to children and young people aged between 12 and 17 from key groups.
"The programme has always offered vaccines to groups where the benefits far outweigh the risks.
"The research and evidence shows that is the case for young people in these groups and they should now be called forward for a Covid-19 vaccine.
"These children and young people will be able to get the vaccine in the most appropriate setting for their situation.
“This may be in their own home or a care setting, or at a clinic, depending on their care or health needs.”
