More than 2 million covid vaccinations now given in Kent & Medway

The focus on the vaccination programme will continue

More than two million people in Kent and Medway have now had the COVID-19 vaccine and NHS staff are well on the way to vaccinating everyone aged 18 or over.

If you still need a vaccine, there are many different ways you can grab a jab at booked and walk-in appointments across Kent and Medway.

You can now find 13 pharmacies and 10 GP-led vaccination clinics on the national booking service, with a further four GP sites due to be added soon. Anyone can use GP services listed on the national booking system; you don’t need to be registered with the practice.

The #GrabAJab campaign continues with walk-in clinics in locations across the county, including Ashford, Canterbury, Malling, Dartford, Hythe, Ramsgate and Swanley.

In a little more than six months, more than two million COVID-19 doses have been given in Kent and Medway, with 1,212,538 first doses (as at 1 July) and 909,492 second doses (as at 1 July).

Paula Wilkins, Chief Nurse, of NHS Kent and Medway Clinical Commissioning Group, said: “We are enormously grateful to the hundreds of volunteers who have supported this huge rollout and the dozens of community-based organisations that have shared insight into reaching some hard-to-reach groups of people, as well as the vaccination teams themselves. We have received incredible support from local councils and other partners across Kent and Medway – we couldn’t have got this far without you.’’

  1. Open letter from Dr Sam White’s lawyers to NHS England chief executive, Sir Simon Stevens, is interesting after he was penalised for speaking out about his concerns of the handling of covid19 and the questionable safety of the experimental gene therapy on emergency licence with no long term safety studies. The government’s 22nd update of adverse reactions to the jabs via the MHRA (now out of date) number over a million. Deaths are over 1,400, and reporting is thought to be between 1 to 10 per cent of the true figures. US CDC and European EMA figures are far higher and equally unprecedented in vaccine damage and deaths.
