People are being encouraged to follow sensible precautions and enjoy a safe summer.
Many families will be looking forward to enjoying the summer holiday with no Covid-19 restrictions. However, parents are encouraged to ensure their children are up-to-date with their Covid vaccinations before they return to school in September.
Staffordshire County Council’s Cabinet Support Member for Public Health and Integrated Care, Paul Northcott, said:
“I’m pleased that residents will be able to enjoy the summer holiday without restrictions, but please do everything you can to keep others safe.
There are some walk-in clinics operating across Staffordshire this summer, so please take this opportunity to ensure all members of the family are fully vaccinated before schools re-open in September.”
Anybody still in need of a first, second or booster vaccine can book an appointment or attend a walk-in clinic.
Anybody aged 5 and over is eligible for the Covid-19 vaccine and anybody aged 16 and over is eligible for the booster jab. A spring booster dose is also available to people aged 75 years old and over and those aged 12 and over with weakened immune systems.
