Today new rules came into effect on self-isolation as part of the Government’s Covid-19 roadmap. These changes mean that close contacts will no longer have to self-isolate if they are fully vaccinated or under 18 years of age.
It was great to hear the news that more than 75% of adults have now received two doses of the Covid vaccine. Our world-class vaccination effort continues at pace and I would encourage anyone who has not yet had their first or second dose to book an appointment to get the jab.
Following updated advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation, young people aged 16-17 and those aged 12-15 with underlying health conditions will now be eligible to get the Covid vaccine.
There are Covid-19 vaccination walk-in clinics operating in Harpenden over the next week. Anyone over 18 can get your first or second dose, with a minimum 8 week gap for those aged 40+ and a 12 week gap for under 40s. Astra Zeneca and Pfizer jabs are available.
