Test and trace

Coronavirus has not gone away and case numbers continue to be high. It is still possible to catch and spread COVID-19, even if you have been vaccinated. 

You should get a PCR test if you have any of the following symptoms:

  • a high temperature
  • a new, continuous cough
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste.


Vaccinations are being offered to everyone aged 12 and over.

You may receive 1, 2 or 3 doses of a vaccination, depending on your age, job and medical vulnerability.

Most people are able to book a vaccination on the NHS website, or turn up to a walk-in centre to receive the first and second dose of the vaccine.

If you are aged under 18, or are receiving a third booster jab, you may be unable to use the online service to book or turn up to a walk-in centre. Check the NHS website to find out how to receive your vaccination.
