Following on from the advice of the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI), we will shortly begin to offer additional spring boosters to those aged 75 and older, residents in care homes for older people, and those aged 12 years and over with a weakened immune system.
Eligibility for a spring booster is now 91 days (3 months) after your previous vaccination and we will be offering either Pfizer or Moderna.
You can now book your spring booster online via the National Booking System or by calling 119.
Walk-in Spring Booster COVID-19 vaccination clinics available, please check here.
GP practices will also be offering the spring booster and will contact patients to arrange their vaccination appointment. Our teams will be contacting those who are housebound and care homes during the coming weeks, and will also continue to arrange local pop-up vaccination sessions that will be updated on our webpage.
Positive COVID-19 test result?
People aged 18 and over need to wait 4 weeks. Most young people aged 5 to 17 years old need to wait 12 weeks. If you or your child are aged 5 to 17 years old and at high risk from COVID-19, or live with someone who has a weakened immune system, need to wait 4 weeks.
If you or your child have symptoms of COVID-19, but have not had a test, you should wait until your symptoms are better before you get the vaccine. You can talk to a healthcare professional at the vaccination site about this.
