Information about Covid-19 and the Vaccine

Roadmap out of Lockdown

The Government has written a plan to slowly move out of lockdown. This plan has 4 steps. We can only move to the next step if fewer people are catching Covid-19.

Fewer people are becoming seriously ill with Covid-19. This is because of the lockdown and the vaccine. The vaccine stops you getting seriously ill with the virus.
