COVID is still around, let's all do our best to stay safe
The government is removing remaining domestic restrictions in England. There are still steps you can take to reduce the risk of catching and spreading COVID-19:
- Get vaccinated
- Let fresh air in if meeting indoors, or meet outside
- Consider wearing a face covering in crowded, enclosed spaces
The following link will take you to the UK Government website where you can find out how you can help reduce the risks.
Everyone aged 12 and over, and some children aged 5 to 11, can get a 1st and 2nd dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
People aged 16 and over, and some children aged 12 to 15, can get a booster dose.
You can book a vaccination by visiting www.nhs.uk/coronavirus-vaccine or ringing 119.
There are also plenty of drop in clinics in North East Lincolnshire where you can walk in without an appointment. Please visit our page COVID Vaccine Clinics for more information about vaccination and to find a clinic that's suitable for you.
People aged 75 and over, people who live in care homes for older people, and people aged 12 and over who have a weakened immune system, will be offered a spring booster.
Free testing for coronavirus (COVID-19) from the NHS has ended for most people in England.
There are a small number of people who will still be able to get free COVID-19 tests from the NHS.
- If you have a health condition which means you're eligible for new COVID-19 treatments
- If you're going into hospital for surgery or a procedure
- If you work in the NHS or in social care as a patient facing member of staff
Find out more about free NHS tests if you work in adult social care on GOV.UK
