Get boosted now poster
While over 470,000 vaccinations against COVID-19 have been given to Swindon residents, there are still 22,112 adults aged 18 and over in Swindon who have not yet received a COVID-19 vaccine. If you haven’t had your first, second, third, or booster dose yet, it’s never too late – book yours today to protect yourself and others around you.

Every vaccine given has the potential to make a huge difference, either by protecting the individual from becoming ill, or helping them to become less infectious to others. We’re working closely with the region’s Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) to get out into the heart of the community to make sure residents can get their COVID-19 vaccination in a convenient and familiar location. Find a local walk-in vaccination centre near you.

Another initiative available is our ‘grab a cab’ scheme. Swindon residents who are experiencing financial hardship or who have mobility issues and no practical means to get to a local vaccination centre, can book a free return taxi journey to a COVID-19 vaccination site. The scheme has now been extended until the end of March 2022, so book your journey now if you’re eligible. Find out more information on our website.

Restrictions may have lifted across the country, but COVID-19 is still with us and there are things we can all continue to do in order to protect ourselves and others around us. Keep washing your hands regularly, let fresh air in when you’re meeting with others, consider wearing a face covering when in crowded, indoor spaces, get your vaccination if you haven’t already, and test before meeting others in crowded places or meeting someone who is at higher risk of getting seriously ill from COVID-19.
