What to expect from the covid-19 vaccination

COVID-19 is a new illness that can affect your lungs and airways. It's caused by a virus called coronavirus.

The NHS, local authorities, police and fire organisations and third sector and voluntary sector organisations across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent are working very hard to support individuals, families, businesses, care homes and all key workers during the coronavirus outbreak.

It is extremely important that you continue to access NHS services if and when you need to, for example, contacting your GP, NHS 111 and, in emergencies, 999.

This includes continuing to manage a long-term condition, addressing an arising concern about your health, or continuing to attend appointments linked to cancer and so on. View our animation below for information about accessing services during the pandemic. You can also view the British Sign Language (BSL) version here. More information can be found here.

Mental wellbeing is also crucial at this time. You will find helpful links for this and many other areas on this page.
