Stoke-on-Trent Central MP, Jo Gideon visited Hanley Health Centre's Vaccination Centre with the Lord Mayor to thank the staff for their marathon efforts and to see how the rollout of vaccines is going.
Commenting on the visit, Gideon said:
"The feedback from staff was very positive indeed. A huge thank you to everyone involved in this heroic effort to roll out the vaccine across Stoke-on-Trent Central."
Over 4.2 million vaccines have been administered across the United Kingdom
As of the 18th January we are beginning the next stage of the vaccine rollout, as people aged over 70 and those listed as clinically extremely vulnerable are invited to book their vaccination.
The NHS has been working incredibly hard to vaccinate the first two priority groups recommended by JCVI, and now vaccination sites have the supply and capacity to begin targeting the next two groups.
We are on track to deliver vaccines to the first four priority groups by the middle of February, but at the same time we must all continue to play our part to stop the spread of the virus - helping us to save lives and protect the NHS.
