Key Message: As we all get used to living with COVID-19, it is important to remember washing your hands to keep germs at bay – including COVID-19. Make sure to use soap and warm water. Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds.
Wash your hands with soap and water or use hand sanitiser regularly throughout the day. Regular hand washing is an effective way to reduce your risk of catching illnesses, including COVID-19. It is particularly important to wash your hands:
Coughing and sneezing increases the number of droplets and aerosols released by a person, the distance they travel and the time they stay in the air. Covering coughs and sneezes will help reduce the spread of infections such as COVID-19, colds and flu. Remember to dispose your used tissues in the bin.
Following the advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation -JCVI, people aged 40 to 49 can also now book online their booster of either Pfizer or Moderna vaccine.
You can book your booster online if it’s been 5 months (152 days) since you had your second dose — and you will be offered an appointment from 6 months after the date of your second dose. NHS.UK/COVID-Vaccination
