The first patient to receive her Covid-19 jab at Wolverhampton's latest vaccination site has expressed delight at being able to have it.
Kathleen Wynn, 91, was vaccinated on Friday morning at Alfred Squire Medical Centre in Wednesfield, one of several primary care centres across the city which, together with New Cross Hospital, are acting as vaccination sites.
She said: "I think this vaccine is a really good thing. It will be great to be able to see my sister and grandchildren again and it is the hope we need in 2021."
Her daughter Helen Shaw added: “We know that we all need to continue to be careful but getting mum vaccinated against Covid-19 gives us the hope that we can get our lives back as a family. It means so much to us all to not have to worry so much."
Nurse Rhonda Boden, who administered Kathleen's jab, said: "It is so important to get your Covid-19 vaccine when you are invited in. We are here for you, and it is great to see so many of you getting the protection you need; your thanks is all we need to keep going and we are very grateful for your support."
