Get the COVID-19 vaccine to keep yourself and loved ones safe and to prevent new variants
The COVID-19 vaccine is safe, effective and gives the best protection against the virus. As many people as possible need to get the COVID-19 vaccine to reduce the spread of the virus, and to prevent people from getting seriously ill or dying. Given the chance, all viruses will mutate and produce unknown new variants and COVID-19 is no exception. So getting the vaccine could help prevent this from happening and protect our community.
Getting the vaccine will also reduce the chance of you passing the virus onto others so even if you think you will be fine if you get coronavirus, you could pass it onto someone else who could get seriously ill. To keep yourself, loved ones and local community safe, please get the vaccine when it’s your turn at one of 15 vaccination sites across the borough.
If you’re 25 and over, or fall into one of the other priority groups, you’re eligible to have the COVID-19 vaccine now.
