Jonathan Ashworth responds to news that a Vaccines Minister has been appointed

Jonathan Ashworth MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary, reacting to news that the Government have appointed Nadhim Zahawi as Vaccines Minister, said:

“Only days ago Labour called for a Vaccines Minister to oversee the huge logistical challenge of widespread vaccination.

“We now need a mass public health campaign urging uptake of the vaccine, alongside ensuring the resources are in place for GPs and other health professionals to rapidly roll this out as soon as possible.”
