The COVID-19 vaccination effort has reached another milestone this week with 2.5 million jabs now having been given.
COVID has not gone away, and an increase in cases has coincided with recent events such as the Jubilee Bank Holiday and Glastonbury Festival.
That’s why it is essential that anyone who is eligible gets vaccinated. That includes people aged over 75 or with compromised immune systems who can still get their spring boosters. It also includes people who have not had any or all of their first three vaccinations.
Dr Paddy Hannigan, Clinical Lead for the vaccination programme across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent said: “While it is less prominent in the headlines COVID-19 is a serious disease that is still spreading in the community and our best protection against it is vaccination.
