The Minister explained that this misinformation had caused a great deal of concern in the North East and Yorkshire and assured MPs this was not the case.
The Minister confirmed that the North East will continue to receive exactly the same proportion of vaccine supply next week as they did this week, with 1 million vaccines being delivered to the North East and Yorkshire to date. This will allow the region to continue to vaccinate the four key priority groups to meet the deadline of 15th February.
There is no regional redirect happening.
North East Conservative MPs were delighted to hear this from the Minister and will continue to reassure constituents accordingly.
