  1. Why the racecourse,surely somewhere more central could have been found.The leisure centre would have been ideal due to lockdown,As it is those most vunarable have to scrabble around for lifts etc.Nearly a year has passed and this what the health experts have come up with.As a leading virus expert has said,the whole of the country could be vaccinated within a week if it wasn’t for NHS managers not having the commitment to get this done.Those individuals should be named and shamed for their ongoing ineptitude which is costing lives not just from Covid but from other serious conditions.
