Residents encouraged to have Coronavirus vaccine
by ANDREA JENKINS
Hillingdon Council is encouraging residents to take the Covid-19 vaccine, if offered, and is advising people to continue to stay at home.
Those who have received the vaccine are still asked to follow the basic rules, such as social distancing, working from home if you can, washing hands and wearing masks. Leader of the council, Councillor Ian Edwards said: “When the NHS offers you your vaccination, I encourage you to receive it as soon as possible. It is safe and effective, it gives you the best protection against coronavirus, and it offers the best hope of us returning to some level of normality soon.”
Lateral flow testing sites are available, in particular to those who must leave to work, to get tested regularly.
