Colleagues across the NHS are doing an incredible job to deliver what it is the largest vaccination programme in our history, and we thank them once again for their efforts.
The public have an important part to play to help them do this:
- please don’t contact the NHS to seek a vaccine, we will contact you;
- when we do contact you, please attend your booked appointments;
- and, please continue to follow all the guidance to control the virus and save lives.
