COVID-19 vaccinations

Getting your full set of COVID-19 vaccinations is the best way to protect against serious illness from COVID-19. With a high number of cases locally, there is still a risk to health from COVID-19 disease and long COVID.

It is never too late to get a vaccination and there is still plenty of local availability.

You can check if you’re eligible for a vaccination and find details of local clinics via the NHS website.

Across Cheshire and Merseyside, there are drop-in vaccination clinics operating – you do not need to book in advance to attend.

Friendly and supportive chat about vaccinations

If you would like to have a chat about getting a vaccine or help with booking/practical issues, you can speak to a trained colleague in our public health team who can talk to you about your concerns, fears, the benefits etc in a friendly, private and supportive way. We know that the decision to get a COVID-19 vaccination (or indeed other vaccinations) can be difficult and having an independent and supportive colleague to talk to could help.

Please ring the Public Health Team on  0151 511 5200 and ask to arrange a chat about vaccination or e-mail public.health@halton.gov.uk.

Staying safe from COVID-19

We can all play our part by ensuring we’re fully vaccinated, ensure we take care to avoid others as much as possible if we have COVID-19 symptoms or confirmed COVID-19 and continue to consider wearing a face covering in crowded or enclosed spaces while infection rates are high.

Don’t forget the basics of good hygiene like covering our mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing as well as regular hand washing.

All of these behaviours can help to reduce the risk of infection and help us live safely with COVID-19.

 

 

Vaccine video

Vaccine video – this is a short film from NHS England and NHS Improvement developed for people with learning disabilities and/or autistic people.

It describes what a vaccine is, how vaccines are made, why you should get a vaccine, whether a vaccine make you ill and how to decide whether to have a vaccine or not.

Dr Rhona Hobson's guide for parents about 'What is normal?'

Dr  Rhona Hobson, Halton’s Principal Educational Psychologist has produced guidance about the normal responses that we all have and feel in this difficult situation for what is normal? 

Although it has been written for young people, the advice and suggestions provided will be helpful to us all as we move to the transition, recovery and learning phase in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic.
