Please find attached this week’s Covid-19 update for Somerset on behalf of the Engagement Board.

Covid-19 cases are still high in Somerset and, with the media focussing elsewhere and the fact the majority of adults have now been vaccinated, it would be easy to forget we are still in the middle of the Covid pandemic.

With this in mind, and particularly with a lot of Christmas events starting to take place, we need to make sure we keep ourselves and each other safe. Simple ways to do this include wearing a face-covering in crowded and enclosed spaces, washing our hands and continuing to take regular lateral flow tests. Also, if people are unwell they should not mix with others and book a PCR test.

It is also very important to take up the offer of a vaccination – it is preferable to book these prior to attending a vaccination centre via this website. Slots are released into the national booking system as they become available, so you do have to refresh the system if the site you want does not appear.

Finally, in our Covid Catch-up film this week we highlight the excellent work undertaken through the Vaccination Buddy programme in Somerset. The team of trained 'Buddies' speak directly to those people across our many diverse communities who may have questions or concerns regarding the Covid-19 vaccine. We also emphasise the importance of first, second and third doses of the vaccine.
The film can be viewed here.

I wish you a pleasant weekend
