Covid-19 Booster Vaccinations

 

Please note your COVID-19 Vaccination does not protect you against flu, for information regarding your flu vaccination visit our Flu Vaccination webpage.

 

Eligibility

UPDATE 30/11: Please note the that we are aware of the latest JCVI advice around Covid-19 vaccines shared by Sajid Javid on the 29th November 2021.  We are waiting for confirmation from NHS England regarding local roll-out and we will make the appropriate changes to our operations as soon as we are able to. 

In the meantime, please be patient and continue to check the details below regularly for any updates on the eligibility around vaccines. Please do not attend clinics for a booster vaccination unless you are age 40 plus or in a higher risk group and eligible for a vaccination.

People aged 40 and over, along with those in high risk groups, will be able to book in for their life-saving Covid booster jab three months after their second dose. People in those groups no longer have to wait six months after their second dose to top up their protection.

A booster is different from a third primary dose. A third dose is an extra ‘top-up’ vaccination given 8 weeks after your second dose to people with a severely weakened immune system.

The following groups are now eligible to get their booster jab:

  • care home residents
  • those who are clinically extremely vulnerable (including family they live with)
  • those aged 40 or over
  • front line health and social care workers.

For those about to receive immunosuppressive treatment the booster may be brought forward to a minimum of four months (120 days) to avoid giving the booster when the immune system is less able to respond. Such individuals will need to be scheduled for additional booster at a later date, currently expected to be around six months after the last dose.
