Winter vaccines

The UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) is urging everyone eligible for a free flu vaccine and a COVID-19 booster vaccine to take up the offer as soon as possible.

In addition to the predicted flu wave, the UKHSA has early indications that COVID-19 rates are beginning to rise ahead of winter.

For all those who are eligible, taking up both the COVID-19 booster vaccine and the flu jab is an essential form of protection against the most severe respiratory viruses in circulation this winter.

Residents survey underway

From now until November, we are carrying out a telephone survey.

The survey is asking questions about the local area and a range of council services.

If you are called, it will be an 01663 number, from a company called DJS.

More information, and how to tell us your views if you do not get a phone call, is available at
