    Dear Newburytoday. This is your chance for some once in a career journalism. What's going on with vaccinations in West Berkshire? UK are doing so well yet West Berkshire hasn't got out of the starting gate. What a fiasco.

    "There is currently no local breakdown for vaccination numbers". Of course there isnt, a bit embarrassing to put a big fat zero down isnt it? How unlucky are we living in a local area where not one of the local GP surgeries has had the foresight or inclination to get moving on this, anyone would have thought we had a deadly pandemic on our hands. Shocking lack of urgency and one which quite frankly is unforgivable.
