Covid-19: Vaccination target 'will be hit' in London

A target to vaccinate more than 1.5 million Londoners by 14 February will be hit, the London Assembly has heard.

In January, Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan said he was "hugely concerned" that the capital had one of the lowest
vaccination rates.

London did not get a fair share of doses but supply has since increased, health advisor Dr Tom Coffey said.

Vaccine minister Nadhim Zahawi said the city would "continue to receive a fair share of vaccine doses".

The government has set a goal to offer those aged 70 and over, healthcare workers and people who need to shield
their first dose of a Covid-19 vaccine by the middle of February.

There are about 1.5 million people in those priority groups in the capital.

Assembly members heard that as of Wednesday, over 1.1 million people in London had received a first dose.

Dr Coffey said the amount of vaccine doses given to the city had increased in recent weeks and there was now
a "planned, predictable, steady supply".

Joint chief nurse for NHS London Martin Machray added that they were now "dead on target" to reach the goal by
14 February.

"It's great news," he said, but added there was "more to do".
