Booster Jab Boost and Move to 'Plan B'

The situation is changing rapidly in response to th risk of the Omicron variant of Coronavirus. Please see the latest information in date order below:

On 12 December the Prime Minister gave an address to the nation on booster jabs. saying that everyone eligible aged 18 and over in England will have the chance to get their booster before the New Year.

The government has moved to Plan B in England and the new measures include:-

  • You must wear a face covering ( unless you are exempt ) in most indoor public places, at large venues and events, and on public transport.
  • From 13 December, you should work from home if you can.
  • From 15 December you’ll need to show your NHS COVID Pass at nightclubs, some venues and large events to show you’re fully vaccinated, have had a negative test result in the last 48 hours, or you have an exemption.
  • If you’re a contact of someone who may have been infected with the Omicron variant, you must self-isolate for 10 days, regardless of your age, vaccination status or any negative test results.

You can apply for a payment of £500 if you are employed or self-employed and will lose income because you must self-isolate or look after a child who needs to isolate. Find out more and apply here.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.
