SE Cambs MP Lucy Frazer has praised the “amazing news” of the speed of the Covid-19 vaccine rollout, but has urged residents to keep following the rules. 

Ms Frazer met with Jan Thomas, accountable officer for the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Clinical Commissioning Group to discuss the rollout across the whole and South East of the county. 

Writing on her Facebook page, Ms Frazer said: “There has been a high take-up of the vaccine.

"In South East Cambridgeshire, nearly 93 per cent of those aged over 60 have already had a first dose, including almost all housebound residents.   

“Cambridgeshire as a whole is on track to have offered a first dose to everyone in the top nine priority groups by mid-April.
