Nurses are Being Praised as the Jab Programme is Reaching the Top Four Groups

Nurses really have been commended due to the enormous role that they have played in ultimately helping the UK to hit a major milestone. They have been able to distribute the Covid-19 vaccine to everyone who might be part of the top four priority groups. As well as those who are over the age of 70 and the clinically vulnerable, it would seem that frontline workers and even health and social workers are being given the chance to have their very first dose. They believe that they have never been prouder to be able to work for the NHS or to be a nurse. Even though the programme has been able to reach over 15 million people, it would seem that one fifth of staff who work in a nurse agency or even a nursing recruitment agency have not been able to take up the offer yet. There are ongoing concerns that there is a lower uptake amongst those who come from BAME backgrounds as they are concerned about their health in the profession.

An analysis from a hospital which is in Leicester found that even though 70% of white staff had been in fact vaccinated, it would seem that it was only 36.8% of black staff have had the vaccine. The take-up in the NHS is rising all the time and it would seem that right now it stands at four-fifths overall. That being said, the lower uptake is certainly going to mean that some who are part of minor ethnic groups is lower and that this is going to have a huge impact on the overall state of the workforce. Who knows what the future holds but right now it would seem that there is a lot of work that needs to be done.
