It is part of the huge government drive to vaccinate the entire population. Currently over four million people have received the lifesaving vaccine.
While taking a well earned rest from her work, Dr Lauren received a phone call from an entirely unexpected admirer.
Describing the moment she realised she was talking to the future King of England, Dr Lauren admitted to Yahoo.com that she was “shocked” and “really nervous”.
She added: “He was just lovely and just really kind and grateful, and saying a really big thank you to everybody that’s in our area that have really pulled together to make the vaccination effort go as well as it has.
