Charities join together to boost vaccine drive in the Midlands

Evesham Editorial 5th Mar, 2021

SIXTEEN frontline charities have formed a new partnership to encourage people in the Midlands with long-term health conditions and their carers to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

Organisations including Diabetes UK, The British Heart Foundation, Macmillan Cancer Support and Mencap are joining with the Department of Health and the NHS to promote vaccine uptake among those the charities support every day.

Since February 15 those in cohort 6 – people with certain underlying health conditions and their carers – have been receiving invites from their GP practice to come forward for life saving vaccinations to protect them from COVID-19.

The charities will use the combined strength of their networks to reassure people with long-term health conditions about the safety and effectiveness of the vaccine.
