The volunteers and medical staff at the vaccination hubs in Harrow have received high praise from the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Matt Hancock MP, after he confirmed that the borough has been one of the best performing vaccination teams in the country.
In a letter addressed to two of Harrow’s MPs, Gareth Thomas and Bob Blackman, Mr Hancock gave some of the impressive stats that show Harrow to be leading the way in the COVID-19 vaccination effort.
He said: “I am writing to update you on the fantastic efforts of your local COVID-19 vaccination teams. I am delighted to inform you that Harrow are one of the highest performing vaccination teams in the country.
