Why it's important no-one is left behind in city's vaccine rollout - YEP Comment
Nobody should be left behind in the effort to vaccinate our city.
That is the warning on our front page today, as politicians are set to meet to discuss how to tackle inequalities in the vaccine take-up in Leeds.
Leeds City Council is working alongside health chiefs to encourage all communities to take up the jab.
Groups of GPs are working together with communities to deliver the vaccine in venues which are known to local people and easily accessible.
The news comes as the start of “Phase 2” of the vaccination programme - which involves offering vaccines to healthy adults aged under 50 - came after the Government met its target of offering the vaccine to all those in the highest risk groups.
The pandemic has highlighted the stark inequalities facing our city as well as how indiscriminate the virus can be.
But in order for us to safely continue our way out of lockdown, it’s vital that nobody in our city gets left behind.
