COVID-19 can both be life-threatening and spread more easily in winter when we are more likely to be indoors or in crowded spaces.
As a health or social care worker, you will be caring for people who may be at greater risk from COVID-19.
It’s easy to pass on COVID-19 without knowing. Even if you’re healthy, you can still catch COVID-19 and spread it to the people you care for causing severe illness which can lead to hospitalisation or even death.
Getting vaccinated is the best way we have to protect yourself and those around you.
It is vital that we help maintain protection against severe illness from COVID-19 and flu this winter to avoid additional pressure on the NHS and social care systems during the busy winter period.
