Boost your immunity this winter

Covid-19 and flu spread quickly in winter and can cause serious illness.

Vaccinations are our best protection against the viruses and will help keep you, and those around you safe this winter.

Even if you’ve had all your Covid-19 vaccinations or had the virus itself, your immunity decreases over time and the latest booster provides extra protection against newer variants of the virus. It’s important to have your flu vaccine each year as well, to protect yourself against the circulating flu virus.

If you’re aged 50+, in an at-risk group, pregnant, or you’re a health and social care worker, you are eligible for a free flu and Covid-19 booster vaccine this winter.

It's safe to have both vaccines at the same time, but you need to book them separately.

For more information on how to book click on the link below.

We can all continue to protect ourselves and each other from Covid-19, colds, and flu viruses this winter by taking these simple steps:

  • Wash hands and follow advice to ‘Catch it, Bin it, Kill it’
  • Consider wearing a face covering in crowded indoor settings
  • Give people space where possible
  • Let in fresh air when appropriate.

You can also have your say on how you think the pandemic should be remembered via the Covid Commemoration consultation. Closing date: 5 December 2022.
