COVID-19 vaccine

Vaccination rollout in Stoke-on-Trent

Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, medical and scientific professionals have been committed to developing a vaccine to help stop the spread of the coronavirus.

On Tuesday 2 December, the Pfizer vaccine was approved by the medicines regulator. The NHS has now started to rollout the vaccine to priority groups, and Stoke-on-Trent City Council will be supporting them to delivers as more vaccines becomes available. The Government has now announced that people aged 70 and over and those clinically extremely vulnerable to COVID-19 will now be invited to get their vaccinations. This is the largest vaccination programme in the UK’s history and will take some months to roll out to all priority groups. 

The vaccine is our best defence, however is only one step in the fight against the virus and we all still need to remain vigilant and follow the local COVID alert level restrictions. Please remember #HandsFaceSpace and book a test if you are showing symptoms. Once you have been vaccinated you still need to continue to follow all the guidance to control the virus and save lives.
