Nottingham Hospitals update as admissions with Covid reach 100 in a week – see bed occupancy and deaths

Local health chiefs continue to urge the public to book a Covid-19 vaccination before the holidays to protect themselves and their families from the virus.

The booster program currently vaccinates people over 40, people with a health condition that causes serious complications from Covid-19, and health and social care workers. Those who are eligible can book an appointment at a number of locations across the city and county on the NHS website or by calling 119 3 months after their second vaccination appointment.

The NHS will inform the public when the booster program is expanded to younger cohorts. Please wait until you are invited.
