Coronavirus cases in Buckinghamshire are continuing to rise and residents across the county are being reminded to follow the rules at all times in a bid to stem the increase.
In the seven days leading up to 3 October, 231 Buckinghamshire residents tested positive for coronavirus. This equates to around 42 cases per 100,000 people. This is an increase in positive cases of 86% from the previous week.
As flu season approaches, parents and guardians across Buckinghamshire are being urged to make sure all eligible children are protected against the virus by taking up the offer of a free flu vaccination.
For most children the vaccine is given by a quick, painless spray up the nose.
With coronavirus still circulating, getting a flu vaccination is more important than ever this winter.
This year, children aged two and three, all primary school children, and children in school year 7 will be offered a free flu vaccination by the NHS.
Health and social care providers in Buckinghamshire, including GPs and Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust, are calling on residents to participate in the new Health & Social Care Survey.

Deadline extended to 23rd Oct.
