Councils are being encouraged to let their networks know about a toolkit produced by the Department of Health and Social Care that is available to boost vaccine uptake for young people.
This includes new materials from Public Health England to help councils promote the benefits of the vaccine, and a video explaining why it is important to be vaccinated.
In addition, the NHS has released a powerful video featuring several young patients who experienced serious symptoms of COVID-19 or developed long COVID. The new film also features doctors and frontline staff who treated them and encourages young people to get their vaccines.
