Nearly 1.5 million vaccines have been administered so far across the United Kingdom
Calderdale & Kirklees NHS Trust are administering almost 1000 vaccine jabs a day!
In Calderdale all 5 Primary Care Network will be providing vaccinations by the end of this week and have already started vaccinating in care homes.
Calderdale Royal Hospital is one of five hospital hubs across West Yorkshire providing vaccinations to health and social care staff
Community pharmacies will be starting to offer vaccinations from this month. For Calderdale the first pharmacy going through authorisation is Boots.
We have done more vaccines than rest of Europe combined, and we're the first country to approve both the Pfizer / BioNTech vaccine and the Oxford University / AstraZeneca vaccine.
We are also the fourth country in the world for vaccinations per capita, behind only Bahrain, Israel and the UAE – a testament to British science, as we are leading the world from the front in science, research and development.
Thousands of local people have already had the vaccine and this figure will continue to increase as our national capacity grows
We should have the capacity to deliver hundreds of thousands of vaccines per day by 15 January
We have also confirmed that it is our ambition to have offered a vaccine to every elderly care home resident by the end of January.
