Stuart has welcomed the Government’s Vaccines Delivery Plan – the biggest vaccination programme in British history – that sets ambitious targets as the Government continues to ramp up its vaccine rollout.
Already in West Yorkshire and Harrogate (Health and Care Partnership), 157, 594 vaccinations have been administered, as part of plans to vaccinate the top 4 priority groups by mid-February. So far, more than 5 million vaccinations have been administered to 4.6 million people.
The Government’s Vaccines Delivery Plan sets out how it aims to administer 2 million doses of vaccines by the end of January, as well as offering vaccines to every elderly care home resident by the end of the month. So far, more than half of those over 80’s and care home residents have received a vaccine.
On top of this, the Government is opening up new vaccination sites every day as part of our Vaccine Delivery Plan to ensure everyone is within 10 miles of a vaccination centre. 65 pharmacy sites are joining the programme this week and early next week with more to come.
“The NHS vaccination programme, the biggest in our country’s history, has got off to a fantastic start thanks to the hard work of all of those involved. It’s great to see that so many people in my area have received the vaccine as we lead the world in our fight back against COVID-19.
I look forward to getting my vaccine over the coming months – and I urge everyone to do the same when they get the call up”.
