Get your second Covid-19 jab

People are being reminded to get their second dose of the Covid-19 vaccine as soon as it is due.

While the initial dose of the vaccine gives people good protection from the deadly virus around three or four weeks after they've had their first jab, they need to have both doses for fuller, longer-lasting protection. Everyone will be offered two doses of the same vaccine, with most having their second jab between 10 and 12 weeks after the first.

For more information about the vaccine, including the answers to frequently asked questions, please visit www.wolverhampton.gov.uk/vaccine. People will need to register with a GP surgery in England in order to receive the vaccine. For more details, please visit www.nhs.uk/nhs-services/gps.

Anyone with symptoms of Covid-19, which include a fever, a new continuous cough or a change to the sense of taste or smell, must immediately self-isolate and book a PCR test by visiting www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test or calling 119.

The latest information and guidance around coronavirus is available at www.gov.uk/coronavirus and on the council’s own coronavirus pages at www.wolverhampton.gov.uk/coronavirus.

Further details of the restrictions currently in place, and the answers to frequently asked questions, are available at www.wolverhampton.gov.uk/covidalert.
