  1. NHS Salford Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), Salford City Council, and Salford Community and Voluntary Services (CVS) are working together to organise street teams made up of health and care staff, CVS staff, and local volunteers to provide information about where to get the Covid-19 vaccine and tested. The street engagement is taking place for two weeks, from 28 June to 11 July 2021. Salford has hit the milestone of administering more than 200,000 Covid-19 vaccines, but rates of the virus in the city is amongst the highest in England. Dr Van Selvaraasan, GP and clinical lead for the Salford NHS Vaccination Service, said, Councillor John Merry, lead member for adult services, health and wellbeing said: The street teams are part of a programme of targeted outreach and engagement coordinated by Salford’s Health Improvement Service, focusing on areas of Salford experiencing the highest Covid-19 rates and encouraging as many people as possible to get the vaccine and take part of regular testing. All adults in Salford are now able to book their vaccine through the Salford NHS vaccination service or by calling 0800 953 0116. People aged 16+ who have underlying health conditions or are carers, both paid and unpaid, are also eligible. Alternatively, appointment can be booked through the national booking system or by attending one of the daily walk-in clinics being held across Salford.
  2. Salford has seen a sharp rise in coronavirus infections with its rate as of today standing at 265.4 cases per 100,000 according to latest Public Health England data (a rise of 102%). This now means that Salford has the second highest rate in the region behind Bolton which has seen a 17% drop thanks to increased vaccinations. As of Thursday 10th June, Salford Royal Hospital currently has 28 patients taking up beds due to Covid-19, two of which are being assisted by ventilation. 137,091 residents have been given their first dose of a vaccine, with 93,822 having been administered with the second. There has been a total of 230,913 vaccinations given thus far. The last recorded Covid related death at Salford Royal Hospital was recorded on the 25th of May. There were 131 positive tests recorded today, 687 in the past week, which is a doubling on the previous week. It should be noted that there is usually a delay of up to two weeks before rises in hospitalisations start to increase, as of yet though, hospitalisations remain low. Meanwhile there is talk of up to four-week delay of the June 21st deadline for relaxation of lockdown rules due to the increase in infections as a result of the spread of the Delta (Indian) variant of the virus. The delay would allow for more people to receive their second dose of the vaccine to afford them better protection. Despite increasing infections, hospitalisations and deaths have only increased fractionally, with NHS bosses claiming that their is clear evidence that vaccines have broken the link between rising cases and hospitalisations. Those currently being admitted are generally in younger age groups, or in those who are unvaccinated. Earlier today the vaccine bus took station outside of Morrisons in Eccles, allowing all those eligible (25+) to get their first (Pfizer) jabs, no appointment needed. It is vitally important to have your second vaccine when called up for it, this gives maximum protection. Photo: Salford CCG - Vaccine Bus at Morrisons in Eccles
  3. Positive cases of Covid-19 continue upwards with a slight rise in Salford as a further 60 people test positive for the virus today (Thursday 27th), However it is not all bad news as Public Health England (PHE) estimates that 13,200 deaths have now been prevented in people aged 60 years or older in England up to 13 May 2021 (11,200 deaths in individuals aged 80 years and older, 1,700 in individuals aged 70 to 79 and 300 in individuals aged 60 to 69 years). As of today there is just a single patient reported as being on ventilation at Salford Royal Hospital and a further 22 admitted with the virus, additionally there were just 4 admissions between 16/05 and 23/05 and the last recorded death at the hospital was on May 9th. Overall things in Salford are looking fairly positive but it is vitally important to continue to abide by the social distancing rules in order to ensure that remains so. It clearly shows that vaccination is working and we would recommend anyone who is eligible and has not yet had one to come forward as the numbers speak for themselves. Nationally, the Government estimates also indicate that the vaccination programme has prevented around 39,700 hospitalisations in those aged 65 years and over in England (approximately 4,900 admissions in those aged 65 to 74, 15,600 in those aged 75 to 84 and 19,200 in those aged 85 and over). The method for analysing the approximate number of deaths and hospitalisations prevented by the vaccine programme now takes into account the impact of both first and second doses, due to more data being available. However, it does not include the impact of vaccination on transmission, therefore the true impact of the vaccination programme is likely to be even greater. An updated analysis including nearly 3,000 symptomatic cases of B.1.617.2 provides further confidence that 2 doses of either vaccine are highly effective against the variant first identified in India. Dr Jamie Lopez Bernal, Consultant Epidemiologist at PHE, said:
  4. As the COVID-19 Vaccination Programme continues to roll out across the city, Salford NHS CCG has issued an update. New cohorts announced in Salford As of today, the Salford NHS Vaccination Service is pleased to announce that we have begun inviting cohort seven, which includes all residents age 60 years and over. We will continue to work our way through vaccinating cohort six (who were invited last week), which includes; adult carers; people invited for annual long term condition checks with their GP; and people invited by the NHS for an annual flu jab (excluding asthmatics). As always, patients within these cohorts are encouraged to book their appointments online ASAP at www.salford.nhsvaccinations.co.uk or alternatively by calling 0800 953 0116. Second doses Appointments for second doses will be offered from the end of March / start of April. Please ensure you remind people at all opportunities the importance of attending for the second dose, as this will further boost their immune system response and offer them a longer period of protection against COVID-19. Housebound Patients who are unable to attend a community vaccine site and have not yet had a home visit are now being asked to contact the telephone booking centre on 0800 953 0116, where we will review whether it is possible for someone to visit their home and give them their vaccine there. Meanwhile Salford Mayor Paul Dennett has shared the latest data on the vaccine roll out across Salford which reveals that as of Weds 24th Feb, there have been a staggering 45,020 doses of the vaccines administered across Salford's 3 community hubs in Eccles, Clarendon and Irlam as well as it's outreach sites. This is a phenomenal effort by any standards and with every jab, another Salfordian is given protection against the worst of the virus.
  5. There are concerns expressed within Salford regarding hesitancy from some members of the black, asian, and minority ethnic communities to have to have the Covid-19 vaccination. Dr Ugo Umeadi who is a GP at Cleggs Lane Medical Practice in Salford and he has made a video calling for more uptake of the vaccine whilst at the same time debunking some myths and misinformation which surrounds it. He explains why having the vaccine is the safest, most effective way to tackle the virus Analysis of NHS England COVID-19 vaccination figures show that people of black ethnicity are half as likely as people of white ethnicity to get vaccinated. People of Asian ethnicity are under two thirds as likely as their white counterparts to accept vaccination. England's Deputy Chief Medical Officer says it "really concerns" him that fewer BAME people may get the Covid vaccine. Vaccination figures show that 91% of all recipients of COVID-19 jabs have been white, despite BAME people making up 13.6% of the population. Just 7.8% of all vaccines have been administered to these communities. A campaign to engage with the communities to assure them of the safety and importance of having the vaccine is now underway across the whole of the country.
