More for Monica: 5,000 staff vaccinated at NHS Louisa Jordan

Research by our Healthy Correspondent, Brian McGowan:

More than 5,000 health and social care staff are booked to be vaccinated at NHS Louisa Jordan today (16 January) as part of a mass vaccination drive by NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde.

The operation sees a team of 95 NHSGGC staff working in close collaboration with NHS Louisa Jordan staff to deliver up to 500 doses of the Pfizer vaccine per hour over the course of the day.

Readers will remember Labour’s Monica Lennon desperately seeking something with this tweet:

Located at the Scottish Events Campus (SEC), a total of 65 vaccine stations have been mobilised, utilising the large floor space at NHS Louisa Jordan to ensure a rapid turnaround in a safe environment. The first injection was administered at 8:45am, with the last vaccination targeted for 7:30pm.

Across NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde an additional 2,350 staff are being vaccinated over the weekend at different sites.

The rapid rollout will help ensure a well-trained workforce is in place and processes are well developed to deliver the wider national vaccination deployment plan which will see 400,000 people across Scotland receive jags each week by the end of February.

In line with the national plan, once the vaccine has been offered to all eligible health and social staff within NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, NHS Louisa Jordan will play a key role as a vaccination hub for the general public.

Members of the public will be informed when they are eligible to book an appointment for a vaccine.

  1. Perhaps Monica would have preferred more people to have been infected so that the facility would have been used earlier and provided her with her own version of value for money. No doubt she would then have complained about the infection level being to high.

  2. “morning to moonshine,
    Monica knows every line.
    Don’t ever propose, ’cause Monica knows you know,
    She’ll turn up her nose, and say what a fool you are”.

    And anyone, no matter how stupid, can be Scottish Labour leader.
    Or is it Labovative leader?
