There are now 11 confirmed Covid-19 vaccination hubs across Nottinghamshire as the NHS rollout of jabs continues.

The latest local vaccination service opened on Saturday, January 16, at Newark Showground as part of the roll-out of the Covid-19 national vaccination programme.

Among the first to receive a vaccination at the new site were ex-veterans Tony Parker, aged 81, and his wife Beryl Parker, aged 82, who both live in Newark.

Having met each other in Singapore while serving for the RAF, the Parkers have been married for more than 60 years and have spent the majority of the pandemic shielding together.

Mr Parker said: “We are pleased to be receiving the vaccination and are looking forward to being able to see our family safely again, spending time with them is what it’s all about.”

Nottingham and Nottinghamshire's NHS Clinical Commissioning Group is asking for residents to wait until they have received a letter before contacting the NHS, their GP or local hospital.

RAFPolice No 1 (Specialist) Police Wing recently established a liaison officer with its opposite number in the United States; the Department of the Air Force, Office of Special Investigations.

Both organisations exist to protect critical technologies and information, detect and mitigate threats, provide global specialised police and security capability, conduct serious and complex criminal investigations, and counter foreign adversaries and threats.

This vital post will enable the timely and effective sharing of intelligence, co-ordinated responses to protect joint interests and the development and dissemination of specialist best practice.

There has already been significant success across the counterintelligence, space and cyber domains and is only the beginning of a highly effective and mutually beneficial future relationship.
