Getting vaccinated and playing your part in helping to stop the spread has never been more important. Those aged 23+ are able to book a vaccination from Tuesday 15 June 2021

Simple measures everyone can do are as follows.

  • hands, face, space
  • social distancing is still very important
  • minimise the amount you travel where possible
  • continue to work from home if you can
  • avoid crowded places
  • limit your number of social contacts
  • follow national restrictions guidance.

If you get any symptoms, no matter how mild, you must self-isolate and book a test.
