She added: “This is a massive achievement for everyone involved in the vaccination program and I would like to thank our staff and our local communities for getting us this far.

“Covid-19 is still here so we want to make sure as many people as possible are protected by being vaccinated.

“We have done everything we can to make it as easy as possible for people to be vaccinated with dedicated clinics for certain age groups and those with learning disabilities or autism, home visits for the housebound, appointments and drop in clinics for flexibility.
