Coronavirus: Vaccination

Question for Department of Health and Social Care

UIN HL14743, tabled on 12 April 2021

To ask Her Majesty's Government what steps they are taking to ensure that those designated as clinically extremely vulnerable do not have to travel more than 115 miles to receive their COVID-19 vaccine.

In England, more than 98% of the population are currently within 10 miles of a vaccine site. Many of those who are designated as clinically extremely vulnerable are able to receive their vaccines at these sites. This is informed by advice from their general practitioner and community teams and agreement with their family and/or carer to facilitate this process.

In a small number of highly rural areas, vaccines are provided by mobile units and those who are housebound or in a nursing home would receive their vaccines from roving vaccination teams.
