COVID vaccines are being rolled out across the area, with GPs and vaccination centres also up and running with the jabs in both Maidenhead and Windsor.
Dr Jenny Langdon has also been visiting care facilities and people's homes across Windsor to administer the jab in order of vulnerability - and has been set a target of reaching the over 70s and extremely vulnerable people by mid-February.
Meanwhile, in Maidenhead, a doctor has said that all care home residents for the elderly in the town have received their first dose of the jab. This is also the case for Windsor.
