Kirklees hits Covid-19 vaccine milestone

The NHS in Kirklees has now given over 50% of people who have been vaccinated their second dose.

This comes as it was announced that one third of adults in England have now had both doses of the Covid-19 vaccine.

Latest data shows that 212,990 people in Kirklees have now been vaccinated, with 109,435 of these having received both doses of the jab.

In total, 44 million people in England have now had at least one dose of the vaccine and are benefitting from the protection it offers against COVID-19.

Steve Brennan, Senior Responsible Officer for the vaccination programme in Kirklees said: “Kirklees is making fantastic progress on our vaccination rollout and ensuring as many people as possible get the maximum protection against this awful virus.

“It’s really important that people continue to keep their appointments for their second dose so we can keep moving forward with the vaccination programme and our goal to give every adult their jab by the end of July.

“I would also urge everyone who is eligible to book their vaccination as soon as possible to help to protect both themselves and others.

The NHS is vaccinating in line with guidance from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation as supply allows. If you are aged 40 or over, you can book an appointment online at http://nhs.uk/covid-vaccination or by calling 119 for free.
