The NHS is urging people to grab a ‘Jabuary’ boost to protect themselves from COVID-19 and flu amid continuing high infection rates and hospital admissions.
Hundreds of sites across the region, including general practices, pharmacies and hospital hubs, are continuing to offer first, second and seasonal booster doses of the Covid vaccine throughout January.
Free NHS flu vaccines are also still available at GP practices and pharmacies, and school vaccination teams are visiting secondary schools this month to give the vaccine – which is generally given as a nasal spray to children – to students in years 7 to 9.
Although many have come forward for their Covid booster and flu jab, there are still a number of eligible people who have not taken up their winter vaccinations, placing themselves at an increased risk of serious illness.
People can book a Covid vaccine online or find a convenient walk-in clinic at: www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination.
Those eligible for the Covid booster and flu vaccines are:
In addition, the free flu vaccine is offered to all two and three-year-olds, all primary school aged children and secondary school-aged children in years 7-9.

NHS Cheshire and Merseyside has launched a new campaign to increase awareness of online health services …
From 1 July 2023 the way members of the public make a complaint about primary care services to the commissioner is changing….
High blood pressure, or hypertension, rarely has noticeable symptoms. But if untreated, it increases the risk of serious problems such as heart attacks and strokes. Around 1 in 4 adults in the UK have high blood pressure, although many will not realise it.
With one in ten children not up to date with their vaccinations and at risk of becoming seriously unwell, this World Immunisation Week (24-30th April) the NHS is encouraging people to make sure they are up to date with their routine vaccinations at all life stages.
At 3pm on Sunday 23rd April there will be a test of the Government’s new, national Emergency Alerts system set up to warn people across the UK if there’s a danger to life nearby.
