Jonathan Gribbin Quote On Reaching 100,000 tests

100,000 lateral flow tests completed through our local Community Testing programme!

Through our community testing sites in Nottinghamshire and Nottingham, residents have completed more than 100,000 lateral flow tests!

It’s great to see the community working together to keep each other safe. However, there are high Covid-19 rates across the county, affecting people of all ages, so it remains as crucial as ever to keep getting tested twice a week, even if you have already been vaccinated, so let’s keep going.

Lateral flow tests are quick, free and easy to complete and can be collected from a number of testing sites across the county. They can even be ordered online and delivered straight to your house.

The vaccine keeps your teen safe

The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) has confirmed that all 16 and 17-year-olds can receive a first dose of the Pfizer vaccine.

Encourage your teenager to get protected and book their jab via their GP or find their nearest walk-in centre.

There are resources online for children and young people which provide information about the Covid-19 vaccination.

This is because restrictions have eased and people have been mixing more, resulting in higher cases than usual for this time of year, with further increases expected over the winter months.

Health experts are encouraging parents to ensure they know what to do if their child has a respiratory illness, particularly in young children.
