Use remainder of holidays to get protected


People in Staffordshire are urged to make the most of time off work or school by getting vaccinated against Covid-19.

Walk-in clinics offering first, second and booster doses of the coronavirus vaccine are still operating across the county, with a number of clinics catering to school aged children.

People can search details of their nearest walk-in clinics on the NHS ‘Grab a Jab’ website.

Staffordshire County Council’s Cabinet Support Member for Public Health and Integrated Care, Dr Johnny McMahon, said:

“Getting your vaccine and booster when eligible remains the best way to protect yourself and others from Covid-19. There are still many ways you can do this and I’d particularly encourage anybody with time off work or school this week to take advantage.

“Walk-in clinics in Staffordshire cater to many age ranges so if a child in your care still needs a vaccine, this would be the perfect week to check nearby walk-in clinics and get them protected before heading back to school.”

Anybody aged 5 and over is eligible for a first and second dose and people aged 16 and over are eligible for the booster dose.

The NHS is also offering a spring booster dose to those aged 75 years old and over and those aged 12 and over with weakened immune systems.

More information on the vaccine can be found at: www.nhs.uk/coronavirusvaccine.
