Together We’re Better update | week ending 14th Feb

Last week we administered our 200,000th vaccine in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent. Our teams across the patch have been working extremely hard, vaccinating and protecting citizens against this virus. It truly is a Herculean effort, particularly by our GPs and our thanks go to everyone involved.

Until now, the NHS has asked people to wait until they are contacted about the vaccine to help ensure that those who are most vulnerable are protected first – and that remains the case for most people.

However, the NHS is now asking people aged 70 and over and clinically extremely vulnerable adults on the Shielded Patients’ List who have not been vaccinated yet to come forward and make an appointment.

The easiest way to arrange a vaccination is through the national booking service which can be accessed at www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination.
