100,000 vaccination doses given at King’s House and Guru Nanak Gurdwara Temple in Bedford
The NHS is now offering vaccines to everyone aged 25 and over
Bedford has reached the "great milestone" of delivering 100,000 Covid-19 vaccine doses through King’s House and the Guru Nanak Temple in Bedford.
That's according to figures released by NHS Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes (BLMK) Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), which hailed the news as a "fantastic example of true partnership working" between BEDOC and Bedford Borough Council.
The milestone comes as more than 250 further Deltra variant cases had been identified in Bedford in just seven days
Dr Sarah Whiteman, CCG chairman, said: “We have been working very hard, with our partners, to bring covid under control in Bedford borough and this is a great example of what has been achieved. We couldn’t do this without the support, co-operation and hard work of our local authority partners and our volunteers, and I would like to say thank you to them.”
Dr John Kedward, from BEDOC said: “We have a long-standing relationship with the local CCG, and BEDOC has been pleased to support the vaccination programme. We have been able to achieve this great milestone with the help of our teams working out of King’s House and the Guru Nanak Gurdwara Temple.”
All vaccination centres are on the BLMK website
