Quoted @Conservatives

More than 20 million people across the United Kingdom have received their first dose of coronavirus vaccine 🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧

20 MILLION - Thanks to all involved in this massive effort!

Visiting @HomeOfCricket vaccine centre a couple of weeks ago, the quiet professionalism & dedication of NHS staff, MCC staff & volunteers to get their community vaccinated was really special 🏏 💉

The next Information Commissioner will not just be asked to focus on privacy, but also empowered to unleash the power of data across our country. Getting this right is critical to jobs and growth.

Data has many such wider societal benefits, and as we emerge from COVID, the UK has an opportunity to be at the forefront of a new era of global, data-driven growth.

I want to set a bold new approach: one that no longer sees data as a threat, but as the great opportunity of our time.

Quoted @RoyalFamily

The Queen has spoken to health officials leading the deployment of the COVID-19 vaccine across the four nations of the UK.

Her Majesty heard about the vital importance of ensuring all communities have access to the vaccine, and shared her own experience.

Her Majesty The Queen leading the way as ever

It’s vitally important that when we get the @NHSEngland call, email or text to go in for the vaccine, we take it up to protect ourselves and others

Please #TakeTheVaccine
