Vaccinations

Following the government's announcement of the Covid-19 Response: Autumn and Winter Plan 2021:

  • booster doses will be offered to fully vaccinated over 50s and other priority groups 1-9
  • a first dose of vaccine will be offered to 12-15 year olds

Getting vaccinated is the best way to protect yourself, your family and your community; and to help us get life back to normal. Being vaccinated reduces your chance of being hospitalised by up to 85% but you need two doses for maximum protection.

Beware scams: A fake NHS text has been circulating, telling people they’re eligible to apply for the COVID-19 vaccine. The URL leads to a fake NHS website that asks for your personal details, including your bank/card details in order to ‘check your identity’.
