Nadhim Zahawi told the coronavirus press briefing that the uptake for first doses of the COVID-19 vaccine in London is slightly behind other areas of the UK. The Vaccine Minister added that a summit will be held on Friday in order to create a plan for scaling the rollout of the jab across the capital.
Mr Zahwai said: “We are honing in on areas where the percentage of uptake is lower.
“For example in London where the percentage for first doses is slightly behind other areas in the UK.
“The London team is doing an incredible job and I can confirm today that we are supporting them with a London summit that will take place on Friday.
“It will bring together senior officials, NHS in London, the Mayor of London and clinical experts and community leaders from across the capital.
“So that we can see what has worked and how we can scale it.”
