Over 22.3 million people have received a vaccine so far across the UK. This includes 34,183 Gedling residents, thanks to the Richard Herrod Centre and local GPs.
In line with national supply of vaccines, we have seen lower volumes of vaccine allocated across Nottinghamshire, including to the Richard Herrod Centre in Carlton, and so there are fewer appointments available currently. It is anticipated that vaccine supply will increase significantly shortly and appointment availability will be adjusted accordingly.
While sites are closed for appointments to the public, staff will be at vaccination sites to prepare operationally ahead of imminent increased vaccine deliveries
In the meantime, vaccinations at targeted GP-led clinics in communities of lower uptake continue and anyone who is eligible and has not yet received their vaccination is encouraged to book an appointment.
Last week was another record week for the vaccination programme in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire with 58,713 vaccines administered – bringing our running total to 340,033 (all data to 28th Feb)
That that means 94.8% of people aged 80+, 100% of people aged 75-79, 95% of people aged 70-74 and 86.7% of people aged 65-69 have now received their first dose of vaccine
As of the 28th February, 34,183 Gedling residents have been vaccinated with at least 1 dose.
