In Wolverhampton, the rollout of the vaccine is being primarily led by NHS and the Local Authority is working closely with Wolverhampton CCG and local GPs to support with delivery of vaccines with the initial ambition of vaccinating the top 4 priority groups as advised by the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) as soon as supply chains allow.
All eligible care home residents have now been vaccinated (except for any sites with current outbreaks).
The City is well on the way to seeing all residents who are over 80 receiving an offer to be vaccinated.
Six GP-led sites are continuing to deliver locally across the city. This means that anyone registered with a Wolverhampton GP practice will receive an offer to be vaccinated at a local site in due course.
In addition to this, the LA are supporting Royal Wolverhampton Hospital Trust to prioritise vaccinations for all front-line health and social care staff in the city. The City are working in partnership with the NHS to establish larger delivery sites for GPs to operate from, likely to be geographically spread across the city. The first of which, has the potentially to be operating soon.
I would urge residents of Wednesfield North to keep looking for updates from me on these issues.
