Commenting on the news that Haverfordwest should see a vaccination centre open next week, Stephen Crabb MP said:
“This is very encouraging and it’s what I’ve been calling for since the start of the vaccination programme. I understand it will focus first on delivering the Pfizer vaccine to local health and social care staff. I will continue to stay in close contact with the Health Board to ensure this vaccination centre, along with our local GP surgeries, are getting the support they need to deliver the vaccine smoothly in the vital days ahead.
“With nearly 16,000 vaccines administered in the Health Board region so far, credit should be given to those who are making the vaccine rollout happen. However, the proportion of over 80’s across Wales who have been vaccinated is considerably lower than in England. This is where we need to see progress now. The quicker we get these vaccines out to the most vulnerable, the more lives will be saved.”
