More than 15,000 people have now been vaccinated at Queen’s and King George hospitals. 

Raymond Saville, 64, who works in the housing department at Redbridge Council, was inoculated at King George Hospital earlier today. 

He received a complimentary box of chocolates as did the midwife who gave him the jab, Lauren Davies. 

The 64-year-old said: “It was a pleasant surprise to find out I was number 15,000 and to get a box of chocolates!

“Getting the vaccine means it will be a lot safer going about my work as I have to mix with a lot of people.

“It was a very smooth process, from booking my appointment to getting the vaccine. My vaccinator, Lauren, was also very good.”

Lauren has worked at a midwife in the area for nearly three years and has been helping out at the vaccination hubs at Queen’s and King George hospitals. 

She has been vaccinating people during her days off and also when taking annual leave. 

“Getting to 15,000 is a real sense of achievement that we’re on the right road to tackling Covid-19,” said Lauren.

“It’s a number to be proud of. We’re helping our staff and other key workers stay safe.

“It’s also really nice to have the interaction with so many people who are getting their jabs.

“I’m very pleased with how smoothly the hubs are running, it’s a real credit to everyone involved in the process.”
