Wolves praised for Covid-19 vaccine support

Wolves have been thanked for the support the club has given the NHS in the successful rollout of the Covid-19 vaccine across the city.

Sally Roberts, chief nursing officer at NHS Black Country and West Birmingham CCG and senior responsible officer for the local vaccination programme believes the work carried out by the club has allowed the introduction of fans back into Molineux for Sunday's Premier League fixture with Manchester United.

Roberts said: “I am hugely grateful to Wolverhampton Wanderers for lending their support during the pandemic to promote Covid-19 testing and the successful rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine across the city.

“Spreading the word to keep fans safe is key, and it is this support that has paved the way for introducing fans back into our local stadiums.

“Vaccines are saving lives and are the light out of the darkness, helping us return to things we love safely, not least getting back to watching football the way we know it.

“So I encourage everyone in Wolverhampton to join the pack – and don’t pass, take the shot when you are invited.”
