Stroud District Council leader Doina Cornell has today thanked the NHS and all those involved in the vaccination rollout as new figures reveal 37,029 have been vaccinated in Stroud District. As well as this, Gloucestershire has the best vaccine coverage in the world for over 80s with 99.7% have received their first dose.
Cllr Cornell said,
“The fantastic rollout of the vaccine across Stroud District is the NHS and Britain at its best. The whole community will want to thank the NHS nurses, doctors, and volunteers responsible for vaccinating the most vulnerable people in our area. Coronavirus has been the greatest challenge the NHS has faced since it was created, and we owe them a huge debt.
“Distributing the vaccine is an absolutely critical step in our journey back to brighter days, but it’s also important to recognize everyone who is playing their own part in beating the virus from our key workers and volunteers, to those simply abiding by the rules. I’m really proud of the way this community has stuck together through this terrible time.
“Together we will beat this virus – better days are ahead.”
