Haringey coronavirus (COVID-19) updates
From today (Monday 18 January 2021), people aged 70 years and over, and the clinically extremely vulnerable will begin receiving invitations for COVID-19 vaccinations.
Millions of over 80s, care home residents and NHS and social care staff have already received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Although these groups will remain the priority, the next two cohorts will now be offered the vaccine if vaccination sites have enough supply and capacity to do so.
The government has pledged that everyone in the first four priority groups will be offered their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine by mid-February. For more information please visit GOV.UK (external link).
On Monday (11 January), central government updated its guidance for landlords and tenants following the introduction of a national lockdown.
Measures to prevent the enforcement of evictions in England and Wales have been extended. The ban on bailiff evictions will be pushed back until at least 21 February, for all but the most egregious cases. These measures will be kept under review.
The UK Government has announced that by 15 February 2021, the first dose of COVID-19 vaccinations should have been offered to everyone in the top four priority groups as identified by the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI).
These initial priority groups are:
- all residents in a care home for older adults and their carers
- all those 80 years of age and over and frontline health and social care workers
- all those 75 years of age and over
- all those 70 years of age and over and clinically extremely vulnerable individuals
The vaccine will then be offered more widely in order of age and risk, with the Government aiming to vaccinate all adults by the autumn.
As of 11 January, over 2 million people in the UK have been vaccinated, with over 5,000 of these in Haringey. There are currently three COVID-19 vaccines that have been approved for use by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).
For more information about these vaccines and how they will be deployed please see the UK COVID-19 vaccines delivery plan (external link).
