Hope you had a good Easter weekend!
The good news is that at the end of last week Bury passed the 50% mark in first vaccinations. A total of 90,282 people registered with a Bury GP have had been vaccinated against coronavirus last week, that is more than 50% of the total adult population. A huge thank you to all the staff who have made this tremendous effort possible.
Many people are being contacted for their second dose now. The second dose of the vaccine is given 11 weeks after the first dose, and residents will be contacted by letter, phone or text message to book an appointment when the time is right. If you haven’t been contacted by week 10 after your first dose, please contact your GP practice.
The Government has confirmed that shops, outdoor hospitality, gyms and more can open on 12th April 2021. The BBC has produced this summary of what can happen here. Please do remember to support our great local businesses if you are able to do so in a safe way. Many of our local traders will have struggled significantly in the last year and it is important we keep our local traders.Leave a comment
