As of 22 July, medical staff in the area, which includes the Coquet Medical Group team, had administered a whopping 19,952 first and second vaccinations, making them top of the table for the whole county, according to NHS England data.

As the nationwide Covid vaccination programme draws to an end, doctors are anxious to point out that anyone who hasn’t had a jab can still have one.

Amble’s Dr Ben Burville tweeted: Even if you have currently declined a Covid vaccine the offer is “evergreen” and you can either ring 119 to book if over 18yrs old or go online [nhs.uk] if you change your mind.

He said CMG plans to deliver both flu and Covid booster jabs together, during an Autumn vaccine campaign, and everyone over 50 will be offered a booster, along with those over 16 years who are extremely vulnerable.
