"We are vaccinating huge numbers of people and over the comings week we will see more younger people in our communities receiving the vaccine. It’s a significant milestone for the programme.

“The staff and volunteers at our vaccination sites are working extremely hard to vaccinate our population at great pace and I would like to thank them for their continued hard work as we move into this next stage of the programme, which also includes administering second doses.

“Anyone who is eligible can book in for their vaccination via the local booking site or by calling 0115 883 4640. I would urge anyone in this category to take up vaccination to help protect themselves against Covid-19.

“People in the priority groups which have already been announced have not missed their chance to get jabbed. If you haven’t yet taken up the offer, please do come forward and make an appointment – the vaccine is safe, simple, and will offer you and those around you the best protection against this virus.”

Health bosses say they are also working closely with councils across the area during the pandemic.
