HEALTH bosses have moved to reassure people that everyone in need of a coronavirus vaccination will receive one.

Earlier this week it was revealed that NHS England would reduce the supply of Covid-19 vaccines to the North West by a third, sparking concerns that people may have to wait to get their jab.

However, Su Long, chief officer at Bolton Clinical Commissioning Group, moved to reassure people across the borough that the move was not going to affect the portion of people inoculated.

She said: "“Nationally, vaccine supplies into each local site now reflect the number of people who still need a vaccination in priority cohorts one to four.

"I support this important focus on equity for our whole population.

"Vaccine supply to each site is not a judgement of the numbers they can achieve per day – everyone is keen to do more – it is targeted at the need in the population."

Cabinet minister Michael Gove also promised there “will be no interruption” to UK vaccine supplies after the European Union demanded doses from British plants after supply shortages.

Yesterday, Mr Gove said the “first and most important thing” is that the supply schedule agreed with AstraZeneca is honoured so the domestic vaccine rollout can be delivered before neighbouring nations are aided.
