Three-quarters Of People Under 25 In Newcastle Are Not Double Jabbed

With confirmed positive cases and the number of people needing to be admitted to hospital both increasing in recent weeks, it remains vital that everyone gets vaccinated against covid-19.

Vaccines are already protecting millions of people and are our best way out of the pandemic. We encourage everyone eligible to get vaccinated at soon as possible.

While over 90% of people over 50 in Newcastle have had both jabs, only one if four people under 25 have had both.

Getting vaccinated is quick, free and easy. Proving your vaccination status may also be required for some international travel, or attending large gatherings like nightclubs and sporting events.

Everyone aged sixteen and older can now get a covid-19 vaccine. There are thousands of appointments available every week, as well as lots of drop-in locations with no need to book ahead. Don’t miss out on getting your covid jabs.

Some 12-to 15-year-olds are also now eligible to get the Pfizer vaccine. Eligibility is based on either preexisting medical conditions or living in a household with someone who is immunosuppressed. Those who can get vaccinated at this time will be invited to book an appointment.
