COVID-19: Protect Yourselves & Others
Latest Update on Covid Cases in the Framlingham Area
COVID-19 UPDATE - Mid May
The most recent results for positive Covid cases locally (25/05/22) are shown.
Continuing low levels in the number of reported positive cases since the last set of results. The figures are now similar to those at the same time last year - Let us hope this continues for the time being.
From now on however, with more restricted testing, these results will be less representative.
Everyone should continue being careful. In health settings it is still necessary to observe basic hygiene rules, wearing face masks, and appropriate distancing. The virus poses a real danger to some people.
COVID-19 SPRING BOOSTERS
Everyone aged 75 + and those aged 12 + who are severely immunosuppressed can go to a local walk-in clinic for their 2nd COVID-19 booster dose, or make an appointment via the national NHS booking site.
Those eligible do not need to wait until invited, but there needs to be a 6 month gap since their last vaccination.
A Guide To The Spring Booster can be seen at: www.sneevaccine.org.uk
