Many of you have been in touch with me regarding the Covid-19 vaccine. I understand that misinformation has been spread regarding the vaccine, I recently spoke to Dr Hilary Lovelock Dr Hilary Lovelock, a local GP and the NHS Clinical Commissioning Group Clinical Lead for the vaccination programme here in Nottinghamshire to get an update on the local situation and I have posted this meeting here. I asked her to clarify many of the areas raised to me by constituents.
Cripps Health Centre in Nottingham City has begun vaccinating and we will see more locations open in the coming days. I will make sure to announce new sites opening via my social media accounts. The current vaccination rate means that everyone who falls in to the top two cohorts, set out in the ink below, will have received their first vaccination by the end of January.
The vaccine is being distributed in priority order. That order is set out by the Joint Committee for Vaccination and Immunisation and can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/priority-groups-for-coronavirus-covid-19-vaccination-advice-from-the-jcvi-30-december-2020/joint-committee-on-vaccination-and-immunisation-advice-on-priority-groups-for-covid-19-vaccination-30-december-2020
Letters are being sent out by the NHS with full details of how to book an appointment. The only way to receive the vaccine is by receiving a letter and booking an appointment, please do not contact your GP or go to A & E to receive the vaccine. The letter also sets out information regarding transport options, if you cannot reach your appointment destination without assistance.
If you have any more questions, or would like further information regarding the vaccine then please email me at email@example.com.
