NHS bookings open for Spring boosters
Published on 06 April 2022 11:30 AM
The NHS COVID vaccination programme is inviting eligible people to come forward for their Covid-19 Spring booster jabs.
So who is eligible? Anyone aged 75 and over, people who live in care homes for older people, and people aged 12 and over who have a weakened immune system will be offered the Covid-19 spring booster.
Local NHS teams will be contacting care homes in their patch as they have done previously to arrange boosters for people who are eligible and have been invited. Hundreds of sites including community pharmacies, vaccination centres and hospital hubs are offering spring boosters to those most vulnerable to coronavirus following the updated guidance from the JCVI who advised on an extra spring dose as a precautionary measure.
To book your spring booster please call 119. Calls to 119 are free from mobiles and landlines. Lines are open every day from 8am to 8pm, and 119 can provide support in 200 languages.
