COVID VACCINATIONS - IT'S NOT TOO LATE

 

 
Are you still due a COVID vaccine? All adults should have at least 2 initial doses followed by a booster.
 
It is never too late to have your vaccinations, even if you haven't yet had your first.
 
The Rugby vaccination centre at Locke House (CV21 2AW) is open Weekdays - 8am to 7:45pm
Saturdays - 8am to 4:45pm
Sundays - 8am to 1:45pm
 
GP teams have been asked to clinically prioritise their services to free up maximal capacity to support the covid-19 vaccination programme, alongside delivering critical appointments such as cancer, urgent and emergency care. This might mean that for some people, routine appointments are postponed as part of the national mission to roll out boosters.
 
The Government has asked the NHS to prioritise boosters over other routine care.
 
We appreciate your support and understanding – and urge you to come forward for your vaccination as soon as possible.
Many thanks

  • LONG COVID

Have you or someone you know been affected by COVID-19?

Have you been left with some long-term effects?

Covid 19 has affected us all over the last 12 months and the results of that impact will be with us for some time to come. We are only just beginning to understand some of the long-term implications it can have on the physical and mental wellbeing of survivors. In Warwickshire we know that talking to others who have had similar experiences is essential for growth and recovery. COVID-19 Survivors Group will be molded by its members, through your voices and opinions.

If you or someone you know would be interested in joining a support group, please get in touch at longcovidsupport@brunswickhlc.org.uk
