NINE out of ten people aged 50 and over in Barnsley have had their first dose of the coronavirus vaccine.
As of April 11, more than 123,000 residents in the town had received their first vaccine dose, while more than 33,000 had received their second dose.
A spokesperson for Barnsley Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) said: “It is still vitally important that if you’ve had your vaccine you continue to follow the guidance and rules while the vaccination programme takes place as you can still catch and pass on the virus to others.”
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."
