More than 10,000 people have received a coronavirus vaccine at the hub in Queen’s Hospital. 

Robert Read, who works for NELFT, became the 10,000th person to receive the jab earlier this morning. 

“I had a heart attack last April and in August I had three stents fitted,” he said. “I am classed as someone at risk so I am really grateful to have my first jab, as I want to get back to work and normality.

“To be honest, I feel quite emotional and overwhelmed to be the 10,000th person.”

Robert was also given a complementary box of celebrations for being the 10,000th person to get the jab. 

“It was a lovely surprise to receive a box of chocolates too,” he added. “The whole Covid-19 vaccination process has been excellent and the staff have been fantastic.

“I would definitely encourage others to book their jab when possible as we need to protect ourselves and others around us.”

Mr Read also thanked his vaccinator Sharon who he described as a “lovely bubbly lady”. 

Care home workers, home care workers and other frontline healthcare workers have all been given the vaccine in recent weeks.
