It’s really good news we now have three COVID-19 vaccines approved for use and that people in Kirklees are starting to receive their vaccination.
However, delivering vaccinations to our population will take time so please be patient. The vaccine will be offered to people who are most at risk from the virus before being offered more widely.
The order in which people will be offered the vaccine is decided nationally and based on advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI). For more information on the vaccine and how it is being prioritised, please visit the NHS website.
As more supplies of vaccine become available we will be able to offer a greater number of appointments so that everyone who needs a vaccination is able to get one.
Please do not contact your GP practice to request a COVID-19 vaccine or information about when you or your family member will be offered a vaccination. You will be contacted when it’s your turn to be vaccinated.
COVID infection rates remain high and local health services and hospitals are incredibly busy. The best thing we can all do to protect ourselves; our families and our communities is to remember, Hands – Face – Space.
We’ve put together a range of frequently asked questions to help you learn more about the vaccination and how it is being delivered locally. These will be updated on a regular basis.
