Boris Johnson urges Britons who haven’t used vaxed to get their hands on a Covid booster and pledges free side flow tests

Vaccinations are the most important thing you can do this winter

This is the comment section of Dr. Zoe Williams

OUR NHS is facing extraordinary pressures at the moment.

Nothing out of the ordinary for this time of year – I can’t remember a single year since I got through qualifying where we didn’t have a challenging winter.

When the temperature drops sharply below zero, we see a significant increase in the number of people having heart attacks and strokes, as the blood is more likely to clot.

The risk of catching pneumonia is higher and of course, this is also flu season. And that’s all before you add Covid to the mix.

This year, like last winter, we are seeing a system that was already operating at full capacity being pushed beyond its limits.

The health service couldn’t take longer, and the incredible staff working in the NHS have endured two grueling years with no respite.

So in light of the inevitable pressures facing the NHS, it’s important to remember that each of us can do our best to help. First of all, you can protect yourself against Covid. Immunization is the single most important thing you can do to protect yourself, your family, friends, the wider society and our NHS.

I understand there are still people who are hesitant, but my advice is to get vaccinated and booster shots – get every vaccine available to you. We know they are safe and effective. And recent data have shown they make a huge difference to Omicron, with 90% of patients in some ICUs uninjured.
