Vaccination is our primary defence

Even if our bodies have built some resistance against certain COVID-19 strains over time, we may still be vulnerable to others. This underlines the importance of getting vaccinated regularly to keep you and those around you safe.


Saliva-based PCR testing is available at the following clinics:
