Spread the word #Ihadmyjab

Have you had your Covid jab, or are you about to? If so, thank you for saving lives. We need your help to save even more by sharing your story on social media using #ihadmyjab to encourage vaccine take up.

Studies have shown that the Covid-19 vaccines can both reduce the risk of serious illness and death from Covid-19, along with transmission to others.

In partnership with the NHS, we have launched a new #Ihadmyjab campaign to ask people to take a photo outside their vaccine centre, at home or wherever and post on social media using #ihadmyjab. You can even add a reason as to why you have had it and your hopes for the future.

Those receiving their jab may also receive a #ihadmyjab badge to proudly wear.
