A BARNSLEY MP has urged eligible people to have their Covid-19 booster jab to ‘prevent further lives being tragically lost’.

MP Stephanie Peacock, who represents Barnsley East, expressed her gratitude to the NHS after she attended Apollo Court Medical Practice, Dodworth, for her booster vaccine last week.

“I am very grateful to have been able to receive my booster thanks to our amazing NHS,” she added.

“So much has been asked already of our doctors, nurses and staff in the last two years, but once again they are stepping up to provide an extra layer of safety for our community.

“Please do what you can to protect yourself and your loved ones by getting your booster vaccination as soon as possible.

“Together, we can help prevent further lives being tragically lost to Covid-19.”
