The COVID-19 vaccination programme across Essex is well underway with thousands of people vaccinated already. This is part of the biggest immunisation programme in NHS history.
The coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine is safe and effective. It gives you the best protection against coronavirus.
The country’s most vulnerable are to be offered their second COVID-19 vaccine earlier. Appointments for a second dose of a vaccine will be brought forward from 12 to 8 weeks for the remaining people in the top 9 priority groups who have yet to receive their second dose. This is to ensure people across the UK have the strongest possible protection from the virus at an earlier opportunity.

Vaccine Advice for those that are pregnant
pregnant women should be offered the COVID-19 vaccine at the same time as the rest of the population, based on their age and clinical risk group. They should discuss the risks and benefits of vaccination with their clinician beforehand.
