The trust responsible for Queen's Hospital in Romford and King George Hospital in Goodmayes revealed it has given 136,500 Covid jabs in one year since opening its first vaccine hub.  

Queen’s Hospital opened its hub on December 15 last year, with the aim of vaccinating care home workers and vulnerable frontline staff across Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust's (BHRUT) three boroughs.  

The King George vaccination hub opened in January and became a certified centre in March, allowing it to offer vaccinations to the public.
