Robert Largan MP commented:
“It’s fantastic news that 31,332 people in High Peak have had their first vaccine dose. This is an amazing achievement and I want to thank everyone who has been working so hard to deliver the vaccine programme locally. From the doctors and nurses to the GP practice managers and volunteers. Everyone is playing a vital role and helping to save lives.
“The Government has set an ambitious target to offer a vaccine to every adult by the end of July. I’ll be working with our local NHS to do everything possible to make certain we hit that target.
“We will get through this!”
