Come on now, vaccinate yourself against Covid-19 for everyone's best!
You have received this letter as you have not taken the Covid-19 vaccine, but it isn't too late. Bookings are open for everyone over 16 years old and it will soon be possible even for 12-15 year olds to vaccinate themselves against this disease, so as to not limit our lives.
We are approaching the final phase of the vaccination programme. The longer you leave it the harder it will be. So don't wait, it is easy for you to book a time via 1177.se/Blekinge.
Vaccination is an effective way to avoid becoming sick or dying from Covid-19. Vaccination can also protect your nearest and dearest from infection, as well as being a way back to a more normal life where we can do what we want again, meet in larger groups, travel, got to concerts and matches.
Vaccination is free to all. So book a time, not just for your own sake, but for those in your vicinity.
...as always, we should do our own research and decide for ourselves!
