This week has seen our vaccination programme continue to make excellent progress. So far, 471,352 vaccinations have now been delivered in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire, with 65,874 vaccines administered in the last week alone.
The NHS is urging anyone who qualifies for a jab, but has not yet received one, to book an appointment in the next few days before slots dry up. 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: “We continue to make excellent progress with our vaccination programme with the latest figures showing that 471,352 doses have been administered to date. This is an incredible achievement and it is encouraging to see the numbers of those vaccinated in each cohort increase each week.
“We are currently urging all over 50s to book their vaccines as soon as they can before we experience a reduced supply throughout April. We are confident of meeting the NHS’s commitment to offer first jabs to everyone aged 50 and over and in the top nine vaccination priority groups by mid-April.
“We have a number of fixed-sites offering the vaccine across the county as well as a number of pharmacy-led sites. Please book your appointment as soon as possible if you are over 50, clinically vulnerable or a frontline healthcare worker. We have plenty of slots available over the weekend.”
