During Boris Johnson’s visit (January 25) to the vaccination centre at the Hive, it was revealed the site vaccinated over 13,000 people.
Mr Johnson said ministers were looking at infection rates and progress in vaccinating the top priority groups, which are expected to be completed by mid-February.When the site first opened, Dr Meena Thakur, clinical director of Harrow East Primary Care Network, said: “This could be the start of us beginning to get back to some sort of new normal, so this is a momentous day for us all.”
Harrow has more than 10,000 people aged 80 and over, Dr Thakur said, so people had to be prioritised on factors including whether they were physically able to make it to the centre and whether they had certain conditions such as diabetes or were from a BAME background, making them more vulnerable to the virus.
The Hive which is also the home of Barnet FC and a large sports complex with gym and several playing pitches, banqueting and a large medical centre is owned by UK Cypriot Tony Kleanthous.
