"I know from my postbag how keen people are to have their vaccine locally if possible, so it is wonderful there are even more options for my constituents, in addition to our fantastic GP teams.”

The site is scheduled to administer 1,200 vaccines per week which is in addition to the vaccines being supplied to GP hubs.
