Get Boosted Now
GFirstLEP have asked us to share this with local businesses. Links in blue below.
Vaccines remain the best way to protect ourselves and others. Given the rapid spread of the omicron variant of COVID-19, the government has launched the Get Boosted Now campaign to encourage people to get a booster shot as soon as they can – anyone over the age of 18 is now able to book a booster.
The government is calling on everyone to support the booster programme to avoid the NHS being overloaded and to keep the economy open.
Businesses can help in the following ways:
- Encouraging employees to get a booster (or first and second jab) and supporting them to do it in the best possible way – this might include giving them time off to get the jab.
- Promoting the booster campaign to their customers/supply chain/stakeholder networks. For example using their websites to promote the booster campaign and using their shop fronts to put up communications materials etc.
- If operationally feasible, releasing staff to help with the volunteer effort, either as healthcare professionals or as general volunteers.
