Following the news that the Pfizer/Biontech vaccine was approved by the Medicine and Health Regulatory Agency Charlotte said:
"I am absolutely delighted with this news. The amazing scientists who have worked so hard to develop this deserve an enormous debt of gratitude from all of us. The Government must now distribute this vaccine in a safe but swift manner. I am in regular dialogue with our local public health team and in recent weeks I have met with the Department for Health, Warrington Clinical Commissioning Group, Standing Joint Command and others about our preparedness for vaccine delivery locally. I hope everyone who is eligible to receive the vaccine will take this opportunity, and we can begin our return to normality after this nightmare of a year."
