Vaccination Resources

With the restrictions lifted by the English government, the best way to help your community is to get fully vaccinated against Covid-19. This is still affecting vulnerable people and no restrictions is likely to exacerbate anxiety and mental health concerns, whilst being a direct risk to physical health. Being vaccinated dramatically reduces the risk of serious illness and hospital admissions.

While the pandemic lasts, we are supporting the Islington Voluntary and Community Sector with helpful and trusted sources of information and advice.  We hope this will benefit organisations to engage in conversations with service users around the vaccine and common concerns or misconceptions.
