From the NHS , Every Vaccine Gives Us Hope
The NHS is now moving into its second phase of the Covid-19 vaccination programme, which marks a major milestone. Many more people will soon be invited to join the millions already vaccinated. Here’s everything you need to know about the next phase of the rollout.
- The vaccine is the best way to protect yourself and those around you from the virus. This includes in the workplace.
- Vaccinated people are far less likely to get symptoms from Covid-19. And are even more unlikely to get seriously ill, be admitted to hospital, or to die from it. There’s growing evidence that vaccinated people are less likely to pass the virus to others.
For maximum protection, you need to get two doses, so it’s important you go back when you are contacted.
- Even after having the Covid-19 vaccine, it’s essential that everyone continues to follow Covid-19 restrictions whether they have had the vaccine or not. To follow social-distancing guidance, wear a face covering and remember Hands, Face, Space and Fresh Air.
- The NHS will let you know when your vaccine is ready for you.
There are many resources available to people that have questions about the vaccine.
The NHS urges everyone to be cautious of misinformation and use trusted sources like nhs.uk to answer any questions. For more information, visit nhs.uk/covidvaccine
