COVID-19 Information

Latest SBC Covid-19 Newsletter

Booster vaccine for over 40s

Update from Steve Maddern, Director of Public Health

Rates of COVID-19 continue to increase in younger age groups across the country. While the booster program is protecting many of our friends and relatives, there are still people out there who have not yet taken up their offer of a booster. So as the holiday season approaches and average levels of social mixing go up, please do come forward if you are eligible for a vaccine or a booster, and take up the jab as soon as you are offered.

Older people and those with weaker immune systems are more vulnerable to infection. Always take a rapid lateral flow test before visiting anyone at higher risk of getting seriously ill from the virus.

A reminder that people aged 40 to 49 can now get a booster vaccine six months after their second dose. Book your vaccination appointment online.

All young people aged 16 and 17 can now get their second vaccine dose from 12 weeks after their first one, and all young people aged 12 to 15 can now get their first vaccine dose. Book your vaccination appointment online.

Small changes can make a big difference in the risk of passing on the virus. Help protect yourself and loved ones by opening windows and doors to increase the air flow when meeting people inside. Please wear a mask in crowded places, wash your hands and, if you have any COVID-19 symptoms, stay at home and get a PCR test as soon as possible.
