A message from Akthar Hussain, Managing Director of Nightingale Hospital, London:

Yesterday, I was privileged enough to receive my first dose of the Pfizer/BioNtech RNA Pharmaceuticals GmbH COVID-19 vaccination at St. Mary’s Hospital Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank both NHS and staff at St Mary’s Hospital for allowing over 78 Nightingale Hospital staff members so far to receive their first immunisation in these past two days. Additional clinics have been planned this week. It has been a seamless and efficient process.

Being able to receive this scientifically-proven vaccine myself, and seeing the positive up-take by many staff members at Nightingale Hospital, makes me feel incredibly optimistic about the future.

Together, we’re working to minimise the risk of COVID-19 amongst our co-workers, patients, friends and family.
