The Framlingham Surgery have signed up with Suffolk Federation to deliver the vaccinations on their behalf, and the nearest site will be at Debenham Community Centre. Invitations for vaccination are generated centrally, so people will be sent an appointment directly by Suffolk Federation.

The risk of infection in Fram is currently very low
Let’s keep it that way by contributing to research

The aim of the Fram Covid 19 Response team is to minimise the risk of infection in the town. You can help build a picture of the risk locally by joining the Covid Symptom Study.

Millions of people have signed up to the app, 3,531 in the Suffolk Coastal area. The study, at King’s College London, is building a picture of infection and symptoms across the country and has been accurately predicting the UK’s new hot spots. In the fight against Coronavirus reliable information is key.

  • It only takes a minute each day, reporting your symptoms even if you feel well
  • It will help the scientists to track how fast the virus is spreading in our area.

You can view the COVID Symptom Study results, the maps, and research at: C-19 Symptom Study. To join the study, download the C-19 app on your smart phone or tablet.  A message will be sent each day to remind you to record any symptoms.

It’s voluntary – but the more people who sign up, the better the picture. Over 3000 people in Suffolk Costal have joined so far.
