Cherilyn Mackrory, Member of Parliament for Truro and Falmouth, has welcomed the continuing steady increase in COVID-19 vaccinations in Cornwall.
Figures released on Thursday show that 6,232,584 jabs have now been given in England, with 74,192 in Cornwall, with 78.9% of people over 80 in Cornwall now having received their first jab.
“These latest figures are very encouraging and a real tribute to the hard work of the amazing teams at Treliske Hospital and Primary care networks around Cornwall.”
“All those working in the vaccine rollout are doing an amazing job and really going above and beyond every day to make sure these vaccines reach those who need them most.”
“The opening of the mass testing centre at Stithians on Monday followed by another one at the Cornwall Showground next week will mean even more people will be able to get this vaccine, which will help us win the fight against this virus.”
