Thousands across mid and south Essex get their COVID-19 Vaccination Booster

Vaccination 231221

More than 144,000 people have now received their COVID-19 Booster jab across mid and south Essex since the national call to #getboosted was made ten days ago.

And NHS is urging as many people as possible not to delay getting double-vaccinated and to get a COVID-19 booster, with lots of opportunities open across the area to get vaccinated.

The call is also for those who have not yet had a first jab to do so as soon as possible to avoid serious illness and hospitalisations as the weather turns colder and we head further into winter.

Scientists are worried about the arrival of Omicron variant because of the speed with which it spreads and because two vaccine doses do not give us the protection, we all need.
