Vaccines are safe, effective and save lives and the COVID vaccine offers our community hope.
Vaccines offer a good level of protection and it’s worth having if you’ve had COVID already. This is because the level of protection people get from having the virus may vary depending on how mild or severe their illness was, the time since their infection, and their age. But we know protection from vaccination is good, especially the booster.
Unvaccinated people are more likely to need critical care in hospitals for COVID including the Omicron variant, and their outcomes are usually worse than those who are vaccinated.
Vaccination teams can answer any questions you may have about vaccination and support you to get vaccinated. By receiving your vaccine, you will continue to play your small but incredibly important part in protecting yourself, the most vulnerable and our local NHS.
