    The rollout at present in Shropshire is only the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine which has to be stored at -70oC . This is being organised by NHS England and letters are being centrally organised. All vaccinations for our area are currently being carried out at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital. Vaccination Centres are being opened in other areas and these include the Orthopaedic at Gobowen (now open) and a centre in Ludlow and it is hoped that all centres across the County will be open by the end of the month.

    Councillors in the West of the County are asking urgent questions of Shropshire Council after it emerged that emergency gritters across the County are being refused permission to grit country roads as has been the case in previous winters..

    Heather said: "Across Shropshire, the Council has retained teams of emergency gritters. They are usually farmers or contractors with vehicles that can carry out gritting of country roads.

    Heather Kid has slammed the Council's gritting policy which is leaving pensioners in her ward without access to medical care.

    Heather said: "Much of my ward is hill country going up to 1000' and we have many residents with medical needs scattered around the area. In the past when we have had issues with people needing to access medical care after a snowfall the Council has been happy to come and grit key stretches of road.
