The Prime Minister joined with Winchester’s Member of Parliament in praising Hampshire’s NHS and vast army of vaccine volunteers during today’s PMQS.
With usual constituency Fridays on hold, Steve Brine has spent many getting stuck in at vaccination centres across the constituency, seeing first hard the hard work that goes into the programme, but also the positive effect it has on recipients.
Speaking in the House, Steve said; “News from Winchester for the Prime Minister is that the vaccination programme is going really, really well.
“There are now less than 200,000 people in the whole of Hampshire and the Isle of Wight left to do in Cohorts 1-9. We have the plan, plus the supply to cover them comfortably by the end of March.”
The Prime Minister welcomed this news; “I, of course, thank the NHS in Hampshire and, indeed, around the country for the amazing job that they're doing in rolling out the vaccination programme. It's been truly stunning.”
The PM also confirmed that the efficient rollout had now reach him; “I finally got news that I'm going to have my own jab very shortly and I'm pleased to discover it will certainly be Oxford/AstraZeneca.”
