Vaccinations are our best defence against COVID-19 and flu. By getting vaccinated you will protect yourself and others from serious illness caused by these viruses.
Washing your hands, keeping rooms ventilated and self-isolating if you become ill are also very important steps that we can all take.
COVID and flu vaccines are safe and effective and have been developed and approved through clinical trials across the world. Many millions of people have benefitted from their protection.
