Issued on behalf of NHS Ipswich and East Suffolk, NHS West Suffolk and NHS North East Essex clinical commissioning groups
A brand-new website has been launched which aims to offer residents of east and west Suffolk and north east Essex a single, comprehensive and accurate source of information about Covid-19 and vaccinations.
Created by health care experts at the Suffolk and North East Essex Integrated Care System (ICS), this locally focused site will contain lots of useful information to inform and reassure people during this time, enabling them to protect their own and their families physical and mental wellbeing.

The new website will be updated regularly and contain the very latest information on the ongoing vaccination programme in order to give people clarity on this major situation including:
• Most up-to-date information on who is eligible to receive the vaccine
• Latest details of locations of vaccination centres
• Updates on progress of the local vaccination programme
• Accurate information on efficacy and safety of the vaccines
• A Q&A section covering the most commonly asked questions
• Interviews with people who have received the vaccine and staff who are delivering the programme
Simon Morgan, Communications Lead for the Suffolk and North East Essex Integrated Care System, said: “We are determined to give local people as much information about the Covid-19 vaccination as we possibly can, in one place. I hope it will be a useful resource for local people and those communities we serve. It will be constantly reviewed and kept up to date with videos, information about the roll out of the vaccination and a detailed set of frequently asked questions. We will add to our videos with virtual tours of the vaccination sites so local people can see what to expect when they are invited to receive their vaccination.”
Dr Ed Garratt, Executive Lead for the Suffolk and North East Essex Integrated Care System, said: “With so many different sources of information, where to turn for accurate facts on coronavirus can sometimes be overwhelming, which is why this website is a great idea and I hope will be a well-used resource.
“People can be reassured that this website is a trusted source of local information.”
