Immunisation helps to protect you from disease.  During a pandemic, it's more important than ever to keep up with infant, child and adult immunisations to prevent outbreaks of other diseases.  Make an appointment with  your GP practice and make sure you and your child are protected.  Vaccination appointments count as an important medical reason to leave your home.

Make sure you and your baby are protected.  Pregnant women need to have their whooping cough vaccination.  You can have it at your GP practice from week 16 of your pregnancy.  Planned appointments help to keep vulnerable pregnant mums safe from COVID-19.  Vaccination appointments count as an important medical reason to leave your home.



The NHS remains available for people who need it urgently. The coronavirus pandemic has resulted in a decrease in people accessing NHS services for a range of conditions that are not related to coronavirus.

Public Health England has recently launched the “Help us help you get the treatment you need” campaign. If you need medical help you should still contact your GP practice, use NHS 111 online, or call 111. If you are told to go to hospital it is important that you go to hospital. We would be grateful if you could help us promote this message by sharing your local CCGs social media messages with your networks, friends and families. Click here to hear from a local GP.
