This year, based on the latest scientific evidence, the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) has recommended all adults aged 65 and over, pregnant people, residents and care home staff, carers, household contacts of people who are immunosuppressed, those with underlying health conditions, and frontline health and social care staff will be eligible for a seasonal Covid-19 vaccine.

Treatments for Covid-19
The NHS offers treatment to people with Covid-19 who are at the highest risk of becoming seriously ill.
If you are high risk please order a free pack of rapid lateral flow tests to be sent to your home online or by calling 119. If you then have Covid-19 symptoms you should take a lateral flow test immediately, even if your symptoms are mild.
If your test is negative but you continue to have symptoms, you should take another test on each of the next two days (three tests in total over three days).
If you are positive call 020 3196 3239 or email NEL.CMDUReferral@nhs.net to make an appointment to get treatment as soon as possible.
