COVID-19 Vaccine

A vaccine is what we have been waiting for to help us get back to normal. The booklet below has the answers to some of your questions from our local GPs. We explain why it is so important for us all to get vaccinated, how the appointments work, and we bust some common myths about the vaccine.

Easy Read Information:

If you care for, or know, someone who may find these easy-read resources useful, please do download and share.

Colleagues across the NHS are doing an incredible job to deliver what it is the largest vaccination programme in our history, and we thank them once again for their efforts.

The public have an important part to play to help them do this:

  • please don’t contact the NHS to seek a vaccine, we will contact you;
  • when we do contact you, please attend your booked appointments;
  • and, please continue to follow all the guidance to control the virus and save lives.
