The family Margaret Marshall, 100, have spoken of their upset at her being made to wait for the coronavirus jab.

Around 40,000 people in Leeds have had the jab and her family still don’t know what’s happening.

As part of our clarion call yesterday we asked the Government for clarity on its messaging around vaccines.

We’re also calling on the PM to make sure that vaccine sites are within 10 minutes of homes - rather than 10 miles away - to protect our vulnerable.

Readers just want to know what they need to do next and when.

That is why today we have put forward a list of ten questions to the Government about how the roll-out will take place.

Never before has it been so important to have the right information - and Mrs Marshall surely deserves an answer.
