Oxford Health team efforts adds up to a big 500k jabs!
Members of Oxford Health’s vaccination team have laid out a clear message to celebrate their role in contributing to the Trust’s delivery of half a million Covid jabs.
The Oxford Health vaccination team includes vaccinators, doctors, pharmacists, administrators, marshals and volunteers. They and their counterparts in Oxford and Aylesbury have worked hard since February to administer hundreds of thousands of jabs.
Reading’s mass vaccination efforts started at the Madejski Stadium before moving to the Broad Street Mall, in the town centre, a few weeks ago.
To celebrate the major milestone staff got together before work to spell out the magical 500k in front of a special digital advertisement produced and displayed by Mass Media and the Broad Street Mall. The photo was taken by Callum King from Mass Media.
Tehmeena Ajmal, Oxford Health’s director of Covid operations, said: “To have given half a million vaccinations to people in our centres in Oxford, Reading and Aylesbury in such a short period of time is testament to the hard work of everyone in the mass vaccination team.
“When you go for your vaccination there’s a whole range of people who are responsible for booking you in when you arrive, getting your jab and ensuring you are being looked after from the moment you walk in, to the time you leave.
“I would like to personally thank each and any every person who has played a part in getting us to this milestone.
“Getting vaccinated is still the best way to protect yourself and those around you from COVID-19 and booking an appointment, if you are yet to be vaccinated, is very easy.”

The Trust currently has the capacity to vaccinate over 5,000 people per day and will continue to welcome people to its vaccination centres as the national vaccination programme progresses.
