Local MP Alan Mak is urging everybody in the Havant Constituency to come forward for a booster vaccine as soon as possible, as the Omicron variant of COVID-19 continues to spread.
The most recent estimates are that Omicron makes up 20% of daily confirmed cases of COVID-19.
Scientists have said based on all the available evidence that three doses of a COVID-19 vaccine are the most effective way to reduce the likelihood you will catch Omicron, and minimise symptoms if caught.
Currently, anybody over the age of 18 is able to come forward and book their booster vaccination appointment on the NHS website: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/book-coronavirus-vaccination/
Capacity to administer boosters is being ramped up, with more pop-up sites coming online and existing facilities extending their opening hours, enabling boosters to be administered 7 days a week.
Local MP Alan Mak said: “Getting boosted is the best way to limit the chances you will contract Omicron and pass it onto other more vulnerable people. That is why I am urging every local resident to do the responsible thing for themselves and their community by getting boosted.”
