51 of the most vulnerable people suffering from homelessness in Salford were given a Covid Vaccine today as part of Salford continuing efforts to lead the way with its outstanding vaccination drive across the City.
Calls to vaccinate the homeless and rough sleepers were made last month by a leading homeless charity after it identified that up to 20% of those on the streets were considered to be at high risk because of the virus.
It is the nature of their predicament that they are highly exposed on a daily basis, many of them already suffering from underlying physical as well as mental health issues.
As many of us adhere to the stay at home warnings, for them it is much more complex because of the lack of an actual home.
If you're experiencing and would like to discuss vaccination, please get in touch on Twitter at (1) SPCT Inclusion Service (@ServiceSpct) / Twitter.
If you've been offered it HAVE IT!
