Yesterday, we reached the extraordinary milestone of 25 million people across the UK having received their first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine an incredible milestone that moves us one step closer to safely seeing our friends and family again.
I am pleased that rapid testing sites are now up and running across Hertfordshire. These are primarily for key workers and those who can't work from home, who are not showing symptoms - you are encouraged to book a free rapid COVID test every few days.
I want to say a huge thank-you to everybody working on the Harpenden vaccination roll-out. It has been a brilliant success, one of the best in the country! I have seen first-hand the fantastic job that they have been doing - they deserve all recognition.
A huge well done and thank you to everyone who has made this possible. To the scientists who worked so hard to develop this vaccine, the clinicians, NHS admin staff, doctors, nurses, everyone who volunteered in the trials and those getting the jab today.
