EASTBOURNE MP Caroline Ansell has warned: “The pandemic is not over and the situation could change if hospitalisations and deaths rise.”
And she is urging everyone: “First and foremost, please make sure you have both jabs.”
She says: “The Office of National Statistics released figures this week that I hope will back up the jab message.
Out of 51,281 covid deaths recorded between January 2 and July 2 in England, only 256 died after they had been given two doses and the majority of those were clinically vulnerable patients.
My heart goes out to all those who have lost loved ones but this is a startling statistic. It shows the jabs are saving lives and they could save yours too.
The booster jabs for those over 50 along with the flu jabs will do much to help ease pressure on the NHS too. We are in a much better place but we have to be vigilant now winter is coming. “
