Covid in Scotland: Over the hump?

Cases in Scotland are moving in the right direction again.

There are probably three factors to this.
1) Scotland got knocked out of the football.
2) Schools closed on the 23rd of June.
3) Vaccinations are cutting into the biggest spreading groups.

I'm curious which one it was. School was definitely a major spreader. But on the other hand, if we look at who was getting infected, it looks a little old for school to be the main driver:

Vaccinations are definitely being aimed at the right places:

Although it would be nice if more people in their 20s and 30s (and 40s) would get themselves vaccinated:

In any case, I shall keep my fingers crossed that things keep improving, and that we can vaccinate people fast enough to keep the numbers down.
