Staffordshire County Council - Covid Update 04.11.2021

Schools

  • We continue to work with schools to manage the risk of Covid-19 and the good news is that cases rates appear to be now falling.
  • We are expecting further guidance from the Department for Education for when schools return from half-term next week.

Care Home Staff - Vaccinations

  • We are working with care homes and staff to remind them of the November 11 deadline – where staff must have had both doses of the vaccine to work in the home. (Unless they are medically exempt)
  • This also applies to people who enter the care home for work purposes.
  • We are also reminding partners who may have staff visiting home, for example contract ambulance pick-ups.

Vaccinations:

  • Two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine give you the best protection from coronavirus.
  • The county council, together with our partners continues to push vaccination take up for those who have not yet had their first or second dose.
  • The uptake of the booster Covid jab has been slow in the county and nationally.
  • Anybody who has is 50 or over or has had certain health conditions are eligible six months after their second dose.
  • As well as checking on the NHS portal our vaccination trailer is also touring local communities. Next week it will be at Burton, Tamworth and Penkridge Fire Stations.
