Julie Marson, MP for Hertford and Stortford, has welcomed a personal thanks to Hertford & Stortford from the Health Secretary, Matt Hancock MP, to her constituents for their efforts.
In a video message, Mr Hancock confirmed that over 30,000 local people had been vaccinated.
The Health Secretary also paid tribute to Julie’s efforts of amplifying the public health message by recently visiting and volunteering at Bishop’s Stortford Football Club and Avanti Meadows Primary School. Mr Hancock further confirmed that Julie had highlighted how well organised both sites were and how well they were administering vaccines to him.
More than 90% of people over the age of 70 have received their first dose in every Hertfordshire borough, one of the highest figures in the country.
Commenting on the video message, Julie said:
“For residents to receive a personal thank you from the Health Secretary is very special. Thanks to their tireless efforts, one in four local people have been vaccinated.
“The video message was something that the Health Secretary offered to do for our community. His proactiveness shows how grateful we all are to our brilliant healthcare workers, volunteers and all other people involved in the vaccination programme.”
The local vaccine effort in the Hertford and Stortford constituency continues at pace. It was confirmed in official NHS data on Thursday 25th February that 14,229 under 70s had been vaccinated in Julie’s constituency.
