Boost Your Immunity This Winter

People urged not to ignore COVID-19 booster invitation – as difficult winter could lie ahead

It’s that time of the year when colds and flu sweep through the nation.

This year it’s more important than ever to get a booster jab, not only against the flu but also COVID-19. 

The NHS are urging people not to ignore their COVID-19 booster vaccine reminders, as concerns that people may have ‘covid fatigue’ or believe the virus has simply ‘gone away’ surface.

Advice:

It is important to get your booster appointment booked in as soon as offered it. Although we are now all living with COVID-19, the best form of protection is to ensure your vaccinations are up to date — as the weather changes and we enter flu season, many of us will be indoors more.

COVID-19 and flu spread more easily in winter and can both cause serious illness. So, if you’re eligible, make sure you have your free flu vaccine and the COVID-19 booster this winter #GetBoosted
