1,000 get coronavirus jab
NEARLY 1,000 people in Rossendale have now received the Covid-19 vaccination, with that number set to double in the next few days.
James Randell, 86, was the first Valley resident to receive a jab at Rawtenstall’s vaccination centre last week.
Rossendale council chief executive Neil Shaw tweeted: “A further 975 are planned for the next few days and numbers will ramp up in the coming weeks with the Oxford/ Astrazeneca vaccine rollout.”
