West Yorkshire Mayor, Tracy Brabin, is urging people to get their second Covid jab as soon as it is offered.
Tracy, who had her second jab at the Elland Road Centre on Tuesday 18 May, thanked the staff at the centre and said she was very pleased to have had both doses.
“I’m so grateful to the scientists, researchers, doctors, nurses and all others who made this possible. The second dose of the vaccine helps to provide longer-term protection so please don’t delay and have your 2nd dose as soon as it is offered.”
Dr Phil Wood, Chief Medical Officer at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust and Senior Responsible Officer for the West Yorkshire Vaccination Programme said:
“It is really important that people get their second dose. This gives people a much greater level of protection against Covid-19 and means they will be protected for longer. Please keep your appointment if you have one already or book yours as soon as you are invited. This will help protect both you and others, which is even more important now that restrictions are being eased.”
