Essential Support for Essential Workers

Cheltenham Green Party are asking for frontline workers to be urgently given Covid-19 vaccinations. Rates in Cheltenham as of yesterday have increased by 51 people to 2,871, and we've now seen 100,00 people pass away from the virus.

Frontline workers, including health and social workers, shop workers, teachers, delivery drivers, bus drivers, cleaners and waste disposal workers, firefighters and police officers, funeral staff and many other sectors, are continuing to work in public to help protect people, but are often lacking full protection themselves.

We're all doing vital work wearing masks and socially distancing, but vaccinating key workers can also help to prevent the spread of the virus.

The Green Party have launched a petition to ask the Minister for COVID-19 Vaccine Deployment, Nadhim Zahawi, to prioritise frontline workers - if you agree, you can sign it here.
