MP Encourages Covid-19 Booster Take-up

East Yorkshire MP Sir Greg Knight is urging all of those who are eligible to get their seasonal booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

The NHS is asking people who are aged 50 or over, to come forward for an autumn COVID-19 booster. In addition those who are pregnant, front-line healthcare workers or living with a condition that makes them vulnerable are also being encouraged to get the booster jab.

Sir Greg said: “We were the first country in the world to roll out a successful vaccine programme and it has helped break the link between COVID-19 and serious illness, or even death, in many cases.

“By having a Covid-19 booster vaccination, you are not only protecting yourself but you are helping the NHS by allowing them to allocate desperately needed hospital capacity towards non-COVID patients, so I am encouraging all those eligible in East Yorkshire to come forward and “get jabbed”.
