COVID-19 Vaccination Virtual Q and A

A panel of health and care experts from across Plymouth chaired an online question and answer session to help provide reassurance and the facts around the Coronavirus vaccine to local people. 

Hosted by Tony Gravett MBE from the local Healthwatch, the event took place virtually on 13 April. On the panel was: 
•    Dr Alex Degan, Medical Director for Primary Care for Devon
•    Sue Wilkins, Associate Chief Nurse and Director of Mass Vaccination
•    Ruth Harrell, the Director of Public Health at Plymouth City Council.

Dr Ruth Harrell, Director of Public Health for Plymouth City Council, said: “Over the past 10 months, we have all been working hard to keep Coronavirus OUT of Plymouth. Whilst the rollout of the vaccine is obviously welcomed, with thousands of local people already being vaccinated, it isn’t a quick fix. And the journey will be complicated. The aim of this event was to listen to concerns, provide genuine up-to-date information and dispel any rumours that may be causing anyone to think twice about having the vaccine.”
