The NHS in Essex launched a new website this week, giving residents the latest information and advice on the local COVID-19 vaccination programme.
Set up by Mid and South Essex Health and Care Partnership (MSEHCP), the easy-to-use website provides a wealth of reliable and useful information about vaccination, ensuring residents have the most up-to-date information available, including:
• Guidance on who is currently eligible for the vaccine
• Where to go for your vaccination
• How to book a vaccination appointment
• Information about attending your appointment
• Advice about symptoms and getting yourself tested for Covid-19
The site also provides information in different languages along with a “Frequently Asked Questions” (FAQ) section, covering the most commonly asked questions.
There’s also information about self-care, volunteering and local support. With so much information about COVID-19 and the vaccines available, it’s sometimes difficult to know where to go to find the most up-to-date information; the site acts as a ‘one stop shop’ of valuable information, as well as serving to dispel some of the inaccurate and sometimes confusing myths surrounding vaccination.
The website has a dedicated section for resources in accessible formats including easy read which can be accessed via the following link https://www.essexcovidvaccine.nhs.uk/information-support/easy-read-information/
