Welcome to my latest bulletin. Read on for my rapid update on the progress of the vaccine roll out so far, as well as the most recent developments as we continue to protect the country from Covid-19.
The vaccine has now been extended to 42 year olds. If you are over 42 or clinically vulnerable, you are now being invited for vaccination. Your GP will contact you to offer an appointment.
The team at Manchester Rugby Club are vaccinating nearly 2,000 people a day!
More than 155,000 people vaccinated in our area!
I was so pleased to have been able to visit Manchester Rugby Club at the end of last week.
The vaccine roll out in our area is going from strength to strength. At Manchester Rugby Club alone, more than 25,000 jabs have been administered, giving hope and protection to all of us.
Stockport Borough is doing a fantastic job vaccinating people. 96% of residents aged 70yrs and above have been vaccinated, and more than 60% of all adults have received a jab in our area. Well over a quarter of adults in our community have had their second dose, too.
I met Dr Louise Monk, who is leading the effort at Manchester Rugby Club.
A huge thank you is in order to Manchester Rugby Club for allowing the use of their building and facilities. They have been incredibly accommodating, even rearranging events to ensure that the vaccine drive continues on course. Thanks to them, thousand of people are being vaccinated daily in our region.
On top of this, there is an army of volunteers staffing the centre with support from local shops and organisations who have donated everything from water bottles, to gazebos, to sand bags, to cakes and other baked goods to keep spirits high.
The volunteers have been fantastic - their varied work has included directing people on site, moving and even 'jump starting' cars, carrying out administrative tasks and for those who are trained, vaccinations. Some of them have even been juggling university degrees and full time jobs around this new commitment. As one volunteer said to me - this is a community effort.
A huge benefit of the vaccine roll out has been the work that the primary care network - GPs and pharmacies - have been doing together. The vaccine roll out has offered the opportunity for more joint work amongst the network, which looks set to continue in future.
The Rotary club have not only donated their time - but high vis jackets and other equipment too.
The vaccine roll out is going so well, and we remain on target to offer all adults a vaccination by the end of July. And in our area, it really has been a community effort. From volunteers rearranging their working hours, to insurers agreeing to extra vehicle cover to assist the vaccine effort, to sports clubs giving up their venues, to all the volunteers and medical personnel that staff the hubs - thank you so much!
More than half of the population has now been protected!
In addition to regular casework correspondence, I receive a number of campaign emails and postcards each month regarding various topics. While I always prefer to get back to people directly in the first instance, each month I publish these views on my website. You can read these here ([link removed]) .
I hold regular surgeries both at my office in Cheadle Hulme and around the constituency. In-person surgeries are suspended at the moment in the light of the current situation. However, my team and I will be assisting on all enquiries so please do continue to get in touch with us.
Thank you for taking the time to read my latest e-newsletter. As ever, if there are any issues you'd like to raise with me then please do get in touch.
