Mass vaccination still a huge undertaking

Darren Hughes

Responding to the news that the MHRA have approved the Oxford Vaccine, Darren Hughes, Director of the Welsh NHS Confederation said:

“This is tremendous news and offers a further lifeline to those who are susceptible to the virus. It’s also welcomed at all levels of the NHS in Wales as we can increasingly look towards a service which isn’t under so much pressure.

“The Oxford/ AstraZeneca vaccine makes the logistical challenge of mass vaccination significantly easier due to its storage requirements. However, we must not underestimate this is still going to be a huge undertaking and it is not going to happen overnight.  The NHS in Wales is already using a significant amount of resource to make sure people can get easy access to vaccines in a safe and effective way.”
