A series of case studies on the roll out of the COVID-19 vaccinations.
Councils are front and centre in national and local planning for the COVID-19 vaccine roll out. This reflects the community leadership role of local government and the importance of local health protection, emergency planning and social care systems, as well as the pivotal role local councils have played throughout the course of the pandemic.
Local authorities – both elected members and officers – along with partners in the emergency services and voluntary, community and faith sectors stand shoulder to shoulder with the NHS to support this national effort. This has allowed greater reach into our communities; supported confidence in the vaccine; and most importantly ensured we are able to help those in the priority vaccine groups access the vaccine quickly and safely. This has helped save lives and shows the very best of public services.
