Unison has been lobbying in the lead up to the vaccine roll out to ensure that staff dealing with the public, especially in close contact situations, are vaccinated as early as possible. We are trying to do what we can locally too, but clearly it would be a diversion of resources to spend lots of time dealing with individual enquiries as to when individuals will be jabbed.
The NHS will let you know when it’s your turn to have the vaccine. It’s important not to contact the NHS for a vaccination before then, so please wait to be contacted.
In addition, A plea from NHS staff.
Please make sure you and your family all dig out your NHS number and have a copy of it immediately to hand for when you or they are called for the COVID jab. From my colleagues on the front line this is far and away the biggest bottle neck when it comes to administering the vaccine to as many people as quickly as possible. You can find your NHS number on any NHS correspondence or through the app.”
