Rutland Covid-19 vaccination centre delivers 40,000th jab to Ketton teenager
Rutland Covid-19 vaccination centre has today (Tuesday, June 29) delivered its 40,000th jab.
Vaccinator Liz Burton gave the jab to Anya Gregory, 18, who lives in Ketton, at the vaccination centre at Rutland County Council's offices in Oakham, which opened at Christmas.
Dr Hilary Fox, the clinical director for Rutland Health Primary Care Network, has been leading the effort.
She said: "This is a tremendous team effort from the four GP practices, numerous volunteers including vaccinators , marshals and many people working behind the scenes to contact people and book appointments.
We have had some lovely feedback from patients which is a tribute to the kindness, dedication and professionalism of our vaccinators, marshalls and support teams including St John’s Ambulance.
"We are now coming towards the end of phase two of the vaccination programme which includes everyone over 18 and would urge everyone to get vaccinated as soon as possible. Details on how to book are available at https://www.rutlandhealth.co.uk/covid-19-vaccination-programme-rutland-patient-update/"
Tomorrow (Wednesday, June 30), there is a first dose drop in clinic for anyone over the age of 18 who either lives in Rutland or are patients of a GP practice in Rutland. It runs from 1pm to 7pm.
