Michael Defoe, said: “To date over 32,000 people have taken up their Covid-19 vaccine in our borough, which is absolutely fantastic news. The vaccine rollout programme is injecting hope into our communities and is helping us on our road to recovery and getting our lives back.

“However, we do know there are still some people who are unsure or hesitant about getting the vaccine for their own personal reasons. The number of hospitalisations and deaths is still worrying, so it is important that residents have all the facts, so they can make an informed choice when invited to take the vaccine. This community conversation aims to do just that. Please do attend if you have any questions at all or want to find out more.”

If you’re unable to join us online and would like details on how to join with your phone, please call us on 07714 839449.
