Councillor Adrian Hardman Published Thursday, 25th February 2021

Please see Worcestershire County Council response to Covid-19 vaccinations for people with learning disabilities below.

Councillor Adrian Hardman, Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care, said: “The Covid pandemic has been an extremely difficult time for people with learning disabilities and their families.

“Today’s announcement from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) about prioritising vaccinations for people on a GP register for learning disabilities is very much welcomed.

“We know these individuals are at higher risk from Covid so it’s great news that they will be protected as soon as possible from this awful virus.”
