High street pharmacies deliver NHS COVID jabs

Life-saving coronavirus jabs will start to be delivered at High Street pharmacies, as the NHS accelerates the biggest vaccination programme in its history.

Boots, Superdrug and several independent stores will be the first of hundreds of community pharmacies to offer vaccinations protecting against COVID-19.

Two hundred community pharmacies are due to come online over the next fortnight.

There are already nearly 1,000 vaccination sites across the country with 96% of the population within 10 miles of a vaccine service.

Ten new large-scale NHS vaccination centres, including a rugby ground, racecourse, food court and a cathedral, will open this week, joining the seven centres already delivering the life-saving jab.

Thanks to #OurNHSPeople for delivering the biggest vaccination programme in NHS history.
