Bristol City players and members of the Robins’ staff received their COVID-19 booster vaccine at Tyntesfield Medical Group at the Brockway Medical Centre earlier this week.
The Robins’ team bus visited a nearby General Practice following a training session. Now, more than 95 per cent of the City squad having been vaccinated.
Speaking to the Club’s official website, team doctor and GP, Dr Thom Phillips, explained: “It’s testament to the players and the staff at the Club, who have given really good information and allowed the players to make the decision to come and get jabbed today.”
The new COVID-19 variant – Omicron – is highly infectious and spreading fast. A booster will strengthen your protection from serious illness from COVID-19 and give you the best possible defence and help protect you from becoming seriously ill from COVID-19 in the future. Getting vaccinated is just as important for those who have already had COVID-19 as it is for those who haven’t.
Booster vaccine doses are available for everyone aged 18 and over who have had a second dose of a vaccine at least three months ago. The recommendation is that you should wait at least 28 days from testing positive for COVID to getting your booster vaccine.
