8 March 2021
The Duke of Cambridge visited Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust’s vaccination centre at the King’s Lynn Corn Exchange in Norfolk on 22 February 2021 to pay tribute to the incredible efforts and dedication of the staff involved in the Covid-19 vaccine rollout.
Queen’s Nurse, Mike Passfield, who is Clinical Operations Director for the Trust’s large scale vaccination centres was part of the welcoming party and said:
‘The Duke was really interested in the vaccination programme and the work we are doing at the centre. He was delighted to chat with people having the vaccination to hear what it’s been like for them during lockdown, and to hear from our staff and volunteers about the fantastic work they are doing as part of the biggest vaccination programme in NHS history.
‘I’m incredibly proud to be part of vaccination teams across Cambridgeshire, Peterborough, Norfolk and Waveney that are protecting people with this life-saving vaccination which, in time, will help us all return to a more normal way of life.’
