Information and support regarding the cost of living crisis.
Over the festive season, there are a number of small changes to the usual availability of resources to help tackle COVID-19 – please keep following the guidance, getting tested and coming forward for vaccinations over the holidays.
A free shuttle bus service is being introduced in both Lincoln and Boston, to transport people up to the Lincolnshire Showground and the Princess Royal Sports Arena Mass Vaccination Centres for their COVID booster vaccinations.
People across Lincolnshire are being strongly urged to ‘get boosted’ before Christmas, in response to the exceptionally quick spread of the Omicron COVID variant.
Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on Sunday that everyone aged 18 and over will have the opportunity to book a COVID booster by the end of December, the NHS in Lincolnshire is pulling out all the stops to enable eligible people in the county to take up this offer.
New infection control measures, including the fitting of sensor taps and toilet flushes will be installed in public conveniences in Caistor, Gainsborough and Market Rasen.
Changes to LFT Testing provision in West Lindsey
People across the county are being urged to have their flu and COVID-19 booster vaccinations ahead of the first winter where COVID-19 and Flu circulate fully at the same time. Research shows those infected with both viruses are more than twice as likely to die as someone with COVID-19 alone.
Families are invited to try their hand at the world’s largest drawing festival this September, at an art workshop organised as part of Gainsborough’s Townscape Heritage Initiative.
People in Lincolnshire are being warned that, although COVID case rates have dropped over the last week, this does not mean they do not to be vaccinated.
People in Lincolnshire will be able to take advantage of late night walk-in COVID vaccinations today, Thursday 15th July 2021, until 10pm at the county’s two Mass Vaccination Centres (MVCs) at PRSA, Boston, and the Lincolnshire Showground.
