NHS Nottingham and Nottinghamshire CCG updates on the last week.
The NHS continues to urge the public to get protected against Covid-19 by getting vaccinated. All sites are offering first, second and booster jabs to those who have not yet finished their course of vaccines. The Covid-19 vaccination has a significant impact in lowering people’s risk of serious illness and hospitalisation and health bosses are encouraging all eligible people to come forward and top up their immunity.
Parents and guardians are also being encouraged to book their 5-11s in for a vaccine to make sure they are protected and parents can now apply for an NHS Covid pass for their 5-11 year old to make travelling and booking holidays easier. You can find out more here.
Book your Covid-19 jab: You can book on the NHS website or call 119.
