Staying safe and well this winter
As we approach the final month of the year and begin to deliberate if now is the time to put the Christmas tree up, we should remain mindful of how we can keep ourselves and others safe over the winter period.
Here are some key things to remain aware of this winter:
If you are offered a flu and COVID-19 booster vaccination from NHS Fife, we encourage you to take it to lower your chances of becoming ill from either virus. Visit NHS Inform for more information.
Take a COVID-19 test twice a week to lower community transmission of the virus. NHS Fife is running a campaign on this now – find out here.
Check-in on those around you this winter – Fife Health Promotion Service is running its Festive Suicide Prevention campaign from 29 November and its toolkit includes information on services that will help those struggling over the festive period.
