We, Allendale Parish Council, at our meeting on 7 January 2021 agreed the following statement relating to Coronavirus in our community:
We urge you all to ensure you take up any offer from the NHS to be vaccinated against Covid 19. A third vaccine has just been approved for use in the UK.
Please ignore any information suggesting that approved vaccines will do anything other than protect you, your family and loved ones, and the wider community.
Please also ignore any suggestions that the Covid 19 pandemic: is not real, is just ‘flu, is fake news, is a conspiracy. It is real and is affecting people in our community.
As of 8 January, 78,508 people in the UK have died within 28 days of a positive Covid 19 test, and 1,162 people died yesterday.
We must all obey the regulations in force to protect everyone we love, the vulnerable and the NHS.
Chair, Allendale Parish Council
