Vaccination

Covid-19 vaccination roll out to priority cohorts 5 and 6

We have now moved on to the next stage of the vaccine roll out across Nottinghamshire. Letters and texts have gone out to all residents over 65, inviting them to book an appointment. For the latest information regarding vaccinations for people aged 65 and over, visit, the NHS Nottingham and Nottinghamshire CCG website.

People in Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) Cohort 6 will start to be invited for vaccination over the next few weeks. This group includes all people ‘aged 16 years to 65 years with underlying health conditions which put them at higher risk of serious disease and mortality’ – this is often called Clinically Vulnerable. Cohort 6 also includes those who receive a carer’s allowance, or those who are the main carer of an elderly or disabled person whose welfare may be at risk if their carer falls ill. Finally, the group also includes younger adults in long-stay in-patient, nursing and residential care settings.

Community testing now available in more areas

Jonathan Gribbin quote on community testing

Over 6400 people so far had a lateral flow – or rapid results – test at one of five community testing centres in Mansfield, Worksop and Ashfield, to check whether they have Covid-19, even though they haven’t had symptoms. We know that around one in three people with Covid-19 don’t have any symptoms. Community testing helps to identify these people, helping them to isolate and making sure they have access to the support that is available. Around 1% of those who have taken the test have had a positive result, without being aware they had the virus.

Community testing is aimed at people whose work means that they cannot work from home and need to leave home and travel to work on a regular basis. Most of those who have been tested work in manufacturing or construction, with other people employed in education and council services. More information including locations of community testing sites and opening times can be found on our website.

Guidance on self-isolating

Stay at home

If you develop symptoms of Covid-19, stay at home and self-isolate immediately. If you have a positive test result but do not have symptoms, stay at home and self-isolate as soon as you receive the results. Your household needs to isolate too.

A new illustration by Public Health England explaining the self-isolation guidance is available to view and download: Stay at home illustration [PDF]
