BROMLEY VACCINE & COVID UPDATE Feb 2021

BROMLEY VACCINE & COVID UPDATE

An update on the vaccine rollout across Bromley from NHS South East London CCG shows the percentage of each priority group having received a first vaccine dose as of 18 February 2021:

80 years and over – 91.61%

75 – 79 years old – 90.95%

70 – 74 years old – 90.95%

Clinically extremely vulnerable – 85.33%

65 – 69 years old – 75.27%

The NHS is offering everyone in the top 4 priority groups a vaccine and will be contacting the next 5 priority groups, starting with the over-65s. If you are over 65 years old, clinically extremely vulnerable or a health and social care worker, you can book a vaccination appointment: www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/book-coronavirus-vaccination/

Bromley’s infection rate has dropped to 85.5 cases per 100,000 people, its lowest since mid-October. Lockdown has helped ease pressure on the NHS and our local Trust has seen the number of patients in hospital with coronavirus almost halve since the January peak.
