As well as getting his jab today, Jason asked the Health Secretary if we are still on track to vaccinate all over-50s and deliver the second doses as planned.
Jason McCartney MP
As I am over 50, I will get my Oxford-AstraZeneca jab later today at my local Honley village vaccination centre, which has now delivered over 10,000 vaccinations.
Will the Health and Social Care Secretary join me in thanking our wonderful local NHS, the pharmacy involved and all the volunteers there, and confirm once again that we are still on track to vaccinate all over-50s and deliver the second doses as planned?
Matt Hancock MP
Yes, absolutely. It is wonderful to see the joy on my hon. Friend’s face in anticipation of his jab.
I hope that he gets the opportunity to change into a short-sleeved shirt, because some colleagues have inadvertently had to undo an awful lot of buttons in order to be vaccinated. Although I imagine that some of their more enthusiastic constituents may have enjoyed the sight, I think it is best if we gents wear a short-sleeved shirt so that we do not have to bear our hairy chests.
