PEOPLE are being urged not to be ‘Covid-complacent’ – even if they’ve had the vaccine.

The Clinical Commissioning Group says the rollout of the vaccination programme has been going well, with priority groups – including the over-80s, front-line health and social care staff – the first to get their jabs.

Health leaders in York and North Yorkshire are reminding people that even if they’ve had the vaccine, it’s crucial to continue to follow national guidelines – stay at home unless for specific exceptions, wash your hands regularly, wear a face covering where appropriate and keep your social distance.

Dr Nigel Wells, clinical lead of Humber, Coast and Vale, said: “The optimism and confidence around COVID-19 vaccines may lead to people becoming laxer in their behaviours, in a way that entirely undermines the benefits of the programme."
