Boots and Superdrug among pharmacies to start high street vaccine rollout

Health Secretary Matt Hancock has praised the work of pharmacies throughout the pandemic

High street pharmacies in England will be able to distribute coronavirus vaccines from Thursday, the NHS has said.

Boots and Superdrug branches will be among the six stores across the country which will be able to administer the jabs.

Boots in Halifax, and Superdrug in Guildford, will be in the first group to hand out the injections, alongside Andrews Pharmacy in Macclesfield, Cullimore Chemist in Edgware, north London, Woodside Pharmacy in Telford and Appleton Village pharmacy in Widnes.

The stores have been picked because they are capable of delivering large volumes of the medicine and allow for social distancing, while still giving a spread across the country.

By the end of the month, more than 200 community chemists will be able to give vaccines, according to NHS England.

The pharmacies join the 200 hospitals, around 800 GP clinics and seven mass vaccination centres where jabs are already being handed out.
