People in Brent living too far from a vaccine centre can get their jab from a newly launched bus.

A vaccine bus will be driving to areas where there is low take up such as Kilburn, Church End, Stonebridge and Harlesden.

The bus, which has capacity for 50 vaccinations a day, operates on a drop-in basis so there is no need to book.

People who are in the groups being offered a vaccine, can just walk up and get their jab bringing with them a form of identification.
