BMA calls for gap between vaccine doses to be reduced – Ashworth responds

Jonathan Ashworth MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary, responding to the BMA calling for the gap between vaccine doses to be reduced to six weeks, said:

“While we understand this approach has been endorsed by all CMOs across the U.K. nation, ministers must be fully transparent and engage with all stakeholders, including the BMA, on the evidence upon which they’ve made their decisions.

“All of us want to see the vaccination program succeed and plans need to be in place to guarantee second doses are delivered on time. Worryingly Dominic Raab couldn’t offer that commitment earlier this week.”
