HOMELESS people in Barnsley are currently being vaccinated and plans are in place to manage their second doses.
Michelle Kaye, group leader of housing and welfare at Barnsley Council, said: “We’ve been working on vaccinations for the homeless cohort and on Monday they went on site down at St Mary’s Church, Church Street.
“The majority of the residents there have been vaccinated and we’re doing follow-up work for those that haven’t to get them vaccinated through their GPs.
“Then we’re looking at how we’ll manage their second dose because they obviously might have moved on by the time that happens.
We have been at the heart of our community, every week, since 1858. The town and its people have changed dramatically since then but the Chronicle has been a constant.
It’s our belief that news should be available to everyone regardless of their circumstance. But we need a little helping hand to do so.
Production Editor, Ashley Ball, said: "In an ever changing media world, it’s important that news is reported correctly and without any hidden agenda.
Your support allows us to keep holding decision-makers to account and report on everything that happens in the town, good or bad, fairly."
