“I am hugely proud of our team for their swift response to setting up our clinics that will offer around 1,050 appointments a day between two hospital sites.

Residents who are eligible are being urged to get their COVID vaccines as soon as possible. For more information about how to book, and where you can get your vaccine, visit https://www.thevaccinators.co.uk/
