BARNSLEY Central MP Dan Jarvis had his second dose of the coronavirus vaccine this week - and he’s urging others to get ‘maximum protection’.

Dan had his second jab at the vaccination centre at Sheffield Arena on Monday.

He told the Chronicle: “I am very pleased and relieved to have had my second jab.

“Two doses of the vaccine afford maximum protection, so I would urge everyone to get both jabs.

“The Covid vaccines are effective, reliable and safe; they are our surest route back to normality.

“As case rates surge - both locally and across the country - it is vitally important that everyone does their bit and gets vaccinated.”
