Why do I need to shield if I’ve had the VACCINE?

  • Maureen Hogg from Eaglesham, was given the notice for antisocial behaviour 
  • Police broke up the 70th birthday party, where all attendees had the vaccine
  • In Scotland, groups of up to four from no more than two households can meet outdoors – regardless of someone’s vaccine status 

An 82-year-old grandmother has been fined £60 for attending a seven-person lockdown-breaching 70th birthday bash – even though every person there was fully vaccinated.

Maureen Hogg, from Eaglesham, East Renfrewshire, was given the notice for antisocial behaviour after police broke up the celebration.

All seven attendees received a fine for £60, even though each one of them had both doses of the Covid-19 jab.

Ms Hogg’s granddaughter Daisy Hogg, 17, said her grandmother questioned ‘why she needs to shield if she has the vaccine’.

Scotland’s current lockdown rules say gatherings of up to four people can only happen outside.

Indoor gatherings are banned even if every attendee is full protected from Covid-19 with two doses of the vaccine.

Daisy told MailOnline: ‘She’s been shielding for over a year. Now he’s got her vaccine she was sick of shielding for no reason.

‘She’s quite a social person, she’s got lots of friends. She took the funny side of it. I think they might have been having drinks.’

She earlier shared a picture of her grandmother’s fine to Twitter, writing: ‘Howling that my 82-year-old Gran got a Covid fine cause she got caught at a gaff for someone’s 70th.

‘Taken home by the police and everything, she is who I aspire to be like at 82.’

Daisy later added: ‘I hope I’m partying like her at that age.’

‘I thought it was funny, my Mum and Dad did too.’

When police came to disperse the party, Mrs Hogg was handed a notice under the Antisocial Behaviour Act of 2004.

A shocked Daisy replied to the message saying: ‘Seriously.’

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: ‘We were called around 9pm on Sunday, 11 April, 2021 following a reported breach of coronavirus regulations at a property on Kirkton Drive, Eaglesham.

‘Officers attended, spoke to those involved and seven fixed penalty notices were issued.’
