This week has seen our vaccination programme continue to make progress. So far, 547,585 vaccinations have been delivered in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire while the pressure on our hospitals continues to decline.
The NHS is urging anyone who qualifies for a jab, but has not yet received one, to book an appointment. Those who are currently eligible include over 50s, frontline health and social care workers as well as those who are clinically vulnerable and carers. Read more here.
Amanda Sullivan, Accountable Officer at NHS Nottingham and Nottinghamshire CCG, said: “Latest figures show a continuing decline in admissions to our hospitals relating to Covid-19, which is reducing the pressure within the system. However, there are still more than 100 beds occupied by Covid patients, which means we need to continue to be cautious. In light of this, I would urge the public to be sensible when we enter the next step of the Government’s roadmap to make sure we don’t undo all the positive work we have achieved so far.
“We still continue to offer the Covid-19 vaccine to over 50s and those who need it most in cohorts 1-9. Please continue to come forward for your vaccine if you are eligible. As society begins to open up, it is more important than ever that you are fully protected.”
