SILHILLIANS are being urged to have the second dose of the Covid vaccine to help keep everyone safe.

Solihull Council is calling on those who have had the first dose of the vaccine to book their next appointment in a bid to have greater protection from the deadly virus.

According to the council 44 per cent of Solihull’s population have been vaccinated so far, with 94 per cent of those who have been called up to have it taking up the offer.

And for anyone who has been called to have their first vaccine they are being encouraged to book their appointment on the NHS website –

Councillor Karen Grinsell, cabinet member for adult social care and health, said: “We are really pleased to see so many of our residents have had their first dose of the vaccine and we are urging them to make sure they book in for their second dose.

“Having both will ensure people have greater protection from this deadly virus and they will also be playing a huge part in protecting others.

“For those who have still not received their first dose but are eligible, please take up the offer now and join the rest of us in fighting coronavirus. The more people who are vaccinated, the quicker we can start to move on and get back to some sense of normality.”
