As you may be aware, the government has this week announced that every eligible adult aged 18+ in England will be offered a booster vaccine by 31 December 2021, bringing the target forward by one month.
This is as a result of the Omicron variant, which has been found to be more transmissible than other variants (meaning that it can be passed from one person to another more easily). The Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, has said that a wave of Omicron through a population that was not ‘boosted’ would risk a level of hospitalisation that could overwhelm the NHS and sadly lead to many deaths.
As a result, we are asking for your support in reaching out to as many communities as possible to encourage people to have the vaccine booster. We are also continuing to offer first and second doses to those who have not yet had them, and are strongly encouraging uptake. People can find full information on how and where to get their vaccination on the TWB website, by clicking here.
In response, TWB have created a simplified toolkit, click here to access
