The COVID-19 vaccine programme has expanded rapidly in the last month, with over 2,700 vaccination sites currently in operation via hospitals hubs, local vaccination services and vaccination centres.

The network of vaccination sites has been designed to fit the expected vaccine supply and ensure safe and easy access for the whole population. The Government closely monitors plans for the requirements across the supply chain. For the provision of vaccines and their onward deployment, there are clearly defined supply chain plans for manufacturing, transport, storage and distribution.
