Stay Protected

We have curated a selection of items available online and services from local businesses to help protect you, your loved ones, and the general public during this Coronavirus pandemic.

Standard Masks

It is mandatory to wear a face mask covering your nose and mouth in shops, on public transport in England, and other indoor spaces where social distancing may be hard to do. A standard well fitted mask is required by law in certain circumstances.

FFP3 Masks

FFP3 masks provide greater levels of aerosol filtration when correctly fitted covering the nose and mouth. FFP3 is an EU standard, similar to US N99 masks. They provide "aerosol filtration percentage of not less than 99% and internal leak rate of a maximum 2%".

Face Shields

A face shield can be useful extra protection when worn as an addition to a face mask but a face shield cannot be worn instead of a face mask covering your mouth and nose.

Hand Sanitiser

We recommend using a 60-95% alcohol content hand sanitiser before entering and after leaving shops. Also it is good practice to use it before putting on your face mask and before taking your face mask off.

Hand Washing

Don't forget to wash your hands regularly and thoroughly with warm water and soap for about 20 seconds. We recommend washing your hands right away when you get back home.

Clean Contact Surfaces

When cleaning your home, don't forget to disinfect contact surfaces such as doorknobs, door handles, light switches, remotes, etc.

Two more vaccines, Janssen and Novavax, are making progress.

Trials of the Janssen vaccine involved more than 40-thousand people, none of whom needed hospital treatment or died from coronavirus after the jab took effect. It’s reported that a single dose of the vaccine is 66% effective.

Meanwhile, the Novavax vaccine is showing 89% efficacy in UK trials.

There’s still some way for these vaccines to go before their approval.

Vaccinations in UK 'four times faster than new Covid cases'

There is still a long way to go until the most vulnerable have been vaccinated against Covid-19.

The NHS is vaccinating at the rate of 140 jabs a minute, and Sir Simon says he is “confident” the NHS will deliver 1.5 million vaccines this week.

    The 1st phase of the Coronavirus vaccination programme started on 8th December 2020.

    There are 9 priority groups that make up 99% of preventable deaths from Covid-19. These vaccine groups, in order of priority, are:

    5) All those 65 years of age and over
    6) All individuals aged 16 years to 64 years with underlying health conditions which put them at higher risk of serious disease and mortality
    7) All those 60 years of age and over

  • How safe is the COVID-19 vaccine?

    The vaccines approved for use in the UK have met strict standards of safety, quality and effectiveness set out by the independent Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).

    Any coronavirus vaccine that is approved must go through all the clinical trials and safety checks all other licensed medicines go through. The MHRA follows international standards of safety.

    Other vaccines are being developed. They will only be available on the NHS once they have been thoroughly tested to make sure they are safe and effective.

    So far, thousands of people have been given a COVID-19 vaccine and reports of serious side effects, such as allergic reactions, have been very rare. No long-term complications have been reported.

  • How effective is the COVID-19 vaccine?

    The 1st dose of the COVID-19 vaccine should give you good protection from coronavirus. But you need to have the 2 doses of the vaccine to give you longer-lasting protection.

    There is a chance you might still get or spread coronavirus even if you have the vaccine.

    This means it is important to:

    • continue to follow social distancing guidance
    • if you can, wear something that covers your nose and mouth in places where it’s hard to stay away from other people

  • COVID-19 vaccine allergic reactions

    Tell healthcare staff before you are vaccinated if you’ve ever had a serious allergic reaction (anaphylaxis).

    – a previous vaccine
    – a previous dose of the same COVID-19 vaccine
    – some medicines, household products or cosmetics

    Serious allergic reactions are rare. If you do have a reaction to the vaccine, it usually happens in minutes. Staff giving the vaccine are trained to deal with allergic reactions and treat them immediately.

    You can report any suspected side effect using the Coronavirus Yellow Card safety scheme.
