Vaccination support during December 2021

Primary interest

Do your community/service users need support and reassurance to access the Covid 19 vaccine? Just over 50,000 people in Reading have yet to have their first dose. Scientific data shows that vaccines are our best protection from the dangerous effects of Covid-19, even as new variants emerge.

Covid Information and Question and Answer Session – Online Zoom session

In light of all the recent news and the Omicron variant, we have arranged an online session this Thursday that will include a short talk by Dr Balaji from Melrose Surgery. We will share the support that is available in Reading to access vaccinations, especially for those who need their first or second dose.  There will also be plenty of opportunity to ask questions.

Date: Thursday 16 December

Time: Starts at 5pm (for a maximum of an hour)

Please email to receive a zoom link to join the meeting. Please also send any questions you would like answered beforehand if possible.
