More than 310,000 people have been vaccinated across the county as we continue to battle the Covid-19 pandemic.

According to figures from Buckinghamshire Council that were published at the end of last month, a total of 314, 837 first doses of vaccine had been rolled out as of May 23.

Vaccinations are being operated and run by GPs and pharmacies at various sites across the county, with pop-up clinics in mosques and other community settings also being set up to fight the virus.

There are also dedicated clinics for giving vaccines to homeless people to ensure the jab is as accessible as possible.

Angela Macpherson, Buckinghamshire Council’s Cabinet Member for Health and Wellbeing, said: “Reaching more than 310,000 first doses vaccines is a fantastic milestone and a testament to the collective efforts of all involved in the vaccine rollout.

“We are extremely grateful to all the countless staff and volunteers who have made this happen.

“But it is really important we keep vaccinating as many people as possible, particularly as new Covid-19 variants come to light.

“We strongly urge anyone in priority groups 1-9 - including people aged 50 and over, the clinically extremely vulnerable, carers and health and social care staff - to come forward to have their vaccine if they have not already done so.”

Across the UK, more than 6.5 million vaccines have now been given, with 22.6 million people having had both doses.

Seven out of 10 adults have also had at least one dose.
