Jonathan Ashworth responds to vaccine statistics released by the ONS

Jonathan Ashworth MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary, responding to vaccine statistics released by the ONS, said:

“These take up figures must be a cause for deep alarm. I’ve seen this directly in my own Leicester South constituency.

“We need a plan where local community and faith groups are fully resourced to work alongside public health teams, primary care and community pharmacy to drive up rates by building trust and ensuring access to vaccination.

“It would be totally unacceptable for any community to be left vulnerable to infection because of inaction.”
