Lucy Frazer, the MP for South East Cambridgeshire, visited one of the first GP practices in the area to offer the Covid vaccine.
She said: “It was a real pleasure to visit Staploe Medical Centre to say an enormous thank you on behalf of the local community to the staff for their hard work.
“I met with Dr Richard Brixey, Dr Anthony Gunstone, and Louisa Wood, who described the momentous effort of staff members and volunteers in delivering the vaccine rollout in our region.”
The medical centre in Brewhouse Lane, Soham, was among the first GP practices in Ely and East Cambridgeshire to be part of the rollout.
The building's layout was adjusted to accommodate the vaccination programme. Over 80s started receiving jabs there in December.
So far, more than 766,000 doses of Covid vaccines have been delivered across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.
Ms Frazer described the number as “a remarkable achievement”.
