The success of Derbyshire’s Covid-19 vaccination programme will pave the way out of lockdown in the summer, says a local NHS chief.
However, this hinges on residents taking up their offer of a vaccine when they are contacted and people continuing to follow Covid guidelines and restrictions while they are waiting and after they have had their jabs.
This week Derbyshire has started vaccinating further priority groups, to include those aged 65 to 69 and people aged 16 to 64 with underlying health conditions which leave them at higher risk if they were to contract Covid-19 – priority groups five and six.
William Jones is the vaccination programme lead for Derbyshire and is chief operating officer at the Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS Foundation Trust.
Last week Derbyshire showed that it is leading the nation’s vaccination roll-out, vaccinating the second highest proportion of eligible residents in the whole of England.
