Every care home resident in Camden has now received a Covid vaccine, according to the borough's council leader.
Labour councillor Georgia Gould said more than 100 council workers have now been redeployed to carry out lateral flow tests, with a team of 30 helping to set up testing for schools and 46 officers now in enforcement roles.
The government announced yesterday more than four million people in the UK have received their first dose of a coronavirus vaccine.
The Town Hall reaffirmed last night that it “stands ready” to support residents through the ongoing second wave of the virus sweeping the capital, with 8000 Londoners being treated in hospital for the disease.
According to documents presented by Gould to the LDRS, Camden GPs have now vaccinated almost 5000 patients with the Francis Crick in King’s Cross set to open as a vaccine hub.
Testing is ongoing at the symptomatic testing sites at Ramsay Hall, Kingsgate Community Centre and the Greenwood Place Mobile Testing unit.
Ms Gould said she had written to every resident about the vaccination and the council was working with elderly people in sheltered accommodation.
