NHS Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes Clinical Commissioning Group (BLMK CCG) said it has now delivered 500,782 first doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.

This milestone has been attributed to the hard work of partners and volunteers, and the CCG has reached out to say thank you to all those involved.

Dr Sarah Whiteman, chair of the CCG, said:

“One of the greatest delights in this massive programme has been the way everyone has worked together to deliver a vaccination programme that none of us has ever experienced before.

“Half a million first doses, and counting, is testimony to the hard work that everyone has put in, especially the volunteers whose support has been invaluable.

“Getting vaccinated is the most important step we can take to protect ourselves, our families and our communities against COVID-19. It has been incredibly important to us to ensure that the public we serve has access to the vaccines they need.

“From our large vaccination hubs, to the high street pharmacy, all have worked together to deliver this incredible programme.”

All vaccination centres are on the BLMK CCG website. On social media @BLMK_CCG, regularly gives updates for opening times and drop-in clinics, and the latest opportunity to get your vaccine locally through pharmacies.

The NHS is now offering vaccines to everyone aged 30 and over, and you can book your vaccination today by going online or calling 119 between 7am and 11pm each day.
