The government has set out its plan for the next phase of the COVID-19 response. This details how we live with the virus as we would any other respiratory illness.

Information on the NHS vaccine delivery plan
Everyone invited to get their COVID-19 vaccination is urged to get it as soon as possible to protect themselves and to reduce the spread of the virus to others. All adults can now book to get their booster jab.
You can now book an appointment for the Riviera International Centre via the national booking service.
The RIC is not currently taking walk-ins. You must have an appointment to attend for your vaccination.
Having all 3 doses of the vaccine reduces illness, the virus spreading and pressure on our local NHS. Those aged over 18 years should get their second vaccine dose eight weeks after their first dose. Young people aged 16 and 17 should have their second dose from 12 weeks after their first.
Our vaccines have been approved for use in the UK and have been through rigorous tests and approval processes to prove they are safe and effective.
They have met strict standards of safety, quality and effectiveness set out by the independent Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). More information on safety is available on the NHS website.
