This week has seen our vaccination programme continue to make progress. So far, 735,189 vaccinations have been administered in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire with 51,215 delivered in the last week. In total, 213,613 second doses have now been administered.
This week, the UK hit another milestone after administering 50 million vaccines to the public. This work could not be achieved without fantastic work of NHS, volunteers and partners. The NHS is delivering, on average, 10 million vaccines each month and more than nine out of ten people aged 45 and over in the UK have received their first jab.
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 40s, frontline health and social care workers as well as those who are clinically vulnerable and carers. You can book an appointment by calling 119 or visiting the National Booking Website.
The NHS is here for you and so if you are concerned about a new lump or mole or have any other health issues then please get in touch with your GP or in an emergency call 999. If you are unsure which service you need, call 111 or go to 111 Online who will advise you on the best service for your needs.
If you have symptoms of coronavirus, including a new continuous cough, a high temperature or a loss of, or change in, your normal sense of smell or taste, then get a test by calling 119 or go online to https://www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test
