NEW data has revealed that half of all adults in Redditch have now been fully vaccinated.

Responding to the figures, Redditch MP Rachel Maclean said: “Thanks to the UK’s most successful vaccination campaign in history, we have reached a new milestone in Redditch with 50 per cent of all adults having now received both doses of the covid vaccine.

“I’d like to thank everyone involved in this huge national effort, from everyone in the NHS, the volunteers, Knights Pharmacy and of course the government’s Vaccine Taskforce.

“It’s important everyone gets both doses as this will give you maximum protection against this virus. They are safe, effective and are saving lives. When it’s your turn to do so, please get the jab!”
