    The College of GPs is putting some context onto the scale of the vaccination roll-out

    The College of GPs is putting some context onto the scale of the vaccination roll-out


    National says we're moving too slowly, with just over 90 thousand doses administered so far.

    But Medical Director at the College, Bryan Betty says we haven't faced anything like this before.

    He says five million people need to be vaccinated - with two vaccines each, that's ten million jabs.

    In comparison, last year's flu vaccine campaign reached 1 point 6 million people.
