“I have had calls from residents who have been genuinely anxious about what’s happening with the Covid 19 vaccinations, as nobody seems to be telling them anything.”
“Lack of communication is in itself a stress factor. I have been in contact with the Director of Public Health and the situation is was explained.”
“Vaccinations commenced at 3 locations in the East Riding 15 December, although none of these was in Beverley.”
“2917 people have been vaccinated in the East Riding as of 23 December.”
