COVID-19 Response: Living with COVID-19’, published in February 2022, set out how we have transitioned towards guidance and encouraging responsible behaviours, while targeting protection towards those individuals most at risk from the virus. Updated guidance for the public was published in April 2022 on reducing the risk of catching and spreading respiratory illnesses, including COVID-19. Public health principles were also published to reduce the spread of respiratory infections in the workplace.

The National Health Service and the UK Health Security Agency continue to promote safe behaviours and vaccination to the public via the media, social media and with local communities through Directors of Public Health. The autumn booster vaccination campaign and details of eligible groups will be confirmed and communicated in due course.
