Covid-19 Boosters

This week the Government has approved plans for COVID-19 boosters for eligible groups.

Over the coming weeks the NHS will start offering booster jabs to people in eligible groups. The same priority groups will be offered the boosters in phases.

This means care home residents, health and social care workers, people aged over 50, those aged 16 to 49 years with underlying health conditions that put them at higher risk of severe COVID-19, adult carers, and adult household contacts of immunosuppressed individuals will be offered a booster. The NHS will be prioritising care home residents and staff to ensure they are offered a vaccine by the beginning of November.

Vaccines will be delivered through existing vaccination sites at the Racecourse and in Churchill Square.

You do not need to contact the NHS to arrange your booster vaccine, you will be contacted in the same way as last time, by text message or telephone call. The National Booking service will also start issuing invitations from next week.

Booster jabs are effective for topping up protection for people who have had both jabs from at the very least six months after their second dose.
