Free supply of vitamin D
People who are clinically extremely vulnerable are to be given a free supply fo vitamin D to take over the winter months.
Vitamin D is important for bone and muscle health but there are also reports that it might also somehow protect against getting COVID-19. There isn’t yet enough evidence to prove this and authorities are working together to review the evidence about the benefits of vitamin D.
In the meantime, the government and health authorities are advising people to follow the current UK government advice on vitamin D supplementation to maintain bone and muscle health.
