With the exception of the two hospital sites in the county, the Rugby centre has delivered more vaccines than any other in Warwickshire.

In addition, the feedback from individuals who have attended both Locke House, and the testing centre in Edward Street is extremely complimentary, with many commenting on the professionalism of the staff and volunteers, the Covid security of the facilities and how well organised everything was.

Commenting, Councillor Glenda Allanach (Rokeby & Overslade), said:

"Lockdown has been difficult for everyone and affected health, wealth and well-being. We should be proud that Locke House has delivered more vaccines than any other in Warwickshire. This is hopefully the start of brighter days ahead and it is only right that we thank the dedication and professionalism of the staff and volunteers."

Carie-Anne Dumbleton (Rokeby & Overslade), added:

"We are all extremely grateful to the staff at Locke House. They have done an amazing job and we thank them for all they have done."

Notice of Motion

"Covid 19 has had a major negative impact on people's health, wealth and wellbeing throughout the world. In response to the pandemic, our national government has begun the roll out of vaccination and testing centres throughout England.

With the exception of the two hospital sites in the county, the Rugby centre has delivered more vaccines than any other in Warwickshire "(Rugby Advertiser 21.01.2021). In addition, the feedback from individuals who have attended both Locke House, and the testing centre in Edward Street is extremely complimentary, with many commenting on the professionalism of the staff and volunteers, the Covid security of the facilities and how well organised everything was.

This motion calls for the Council to formally acknowledge the excellent progress our local vaccination centre, Locke House, and the testing centre, have made by recording a sincere thank you to all concerned. When so much of the news around Covid 19 is not good, we feel that such positive news should be celebrated."
