Vaccination milestone evidence of heroic NHS efforts but crisis not over


Commenting on the news that 25 per cent of adults have now had both doses of a COVID vaccine, Ruth Rankine, primary care director at the NHS Confederation, said: “Today, we reach another milestone in the UK’s vaccination campaign and this is yet more evidence of the heroic efforts of so many people across the NHS, including and especially primary care, to make sure as many people as possible are protected.


“People across the UK who are eligible to come forward for a jab should continue to do so. But at the same time, we need to continue to follow the rules, maintaining social distancing and wearing masks to make sure the progress we have made in recent weeks can continue. With growing numbers of cases in the UK of mutant strains of the virus, we must not fall into the trap of believing the crisis is over. No one is protected, until everyone is protected.”
