Funding available to support vaccine take up in Somerset
1st Dec 2021

Grants of up to £500 are now available to support initiatives which will help more people in Somerset to access their Covid-19 vaccinations. 

The local vaccination programme has been a considerable success, with over 90% of adults in Somerset having received both jabs so far. However, some people have been less enthusiastic about joining the queue.

This fund aims to enable local charities and community groups to support those people to access their vaccinations. This could involve delivering a community-led event, attending training, or providing practical support with booking appointments and/or transport. 

You’ll find further information about the fund and details of how to apply here. The closing date for applications is Wednesday 1st December.
