British public urged to play their part in historic vaccine roll out
The public has a vital part to play in the rollout of the UK COVID-19 vaccines delivery plan.
NHS urges Public to join the national effort by helping family and friends aged 80 and over to get their life-saving jabs
Government calls on the public to commit to 3 pledges to support the roll out of COVID-19 vaccines
Around 45% of people aged 80 and over have now been vaccinated and over one million have been offered a jab at an NHS vaccination centre
The NHS has vaccinated around 45% of those aged 80 and over in England and is encouraging people who have been offered a vaccine to book their appointments as soon as possible. Over one million people aged 80 and over have now been invited to book their jab at one of England’s NHS vaccination centres.
Helping vulnerable people to get their vaccinations is one of three pledges the government has asked the public to make to support the largest vaccination programme in British history.
The 3 pledges are:
Help out – help those aged 80 and over by supporting friends, family and loved ones with their appointments, as well as volunteering to help those in the community
Join up – sign up to clinical trials for COVID-19 vaccines and treatments
Stay informed – keep up to date with accurate and trusted NHS advice and make sure to share facts with friends and family
By taking part in one or more of these pledges, members of the public can join the national effort and support the NHS as the vaccination programme continues to expand.
