COVID-19

Spring boosters

You will be offered a spring booster if you:

  • are aged 75 and over
  • live in a care home for older people
  • are aged 12 and over and have a weakened immune system

COVID-19 may affect you more seriously if you are in one of these groups. The spring booster is being offered to help reduce your risk of getting seriously ill from COVID-19.

When to get your spring booster

You will be contacted by us when you are due a spring booster. You will usually be offered an appointment around 6 months after your last dose of COVID-19 vaccine.

If you are eligible for a spring booster, but have not had a 1st or 2nd dose of the COVID-19 vaccine yet, you should have them as soon as possible.

If you have a severely weakened immune system you need to get a 3rd dose before you get a booster.

How to get your spring booster

You will be contacted by the NHS and invited to book your spring booster when it’s due.

You may be offered appointment dates from 3 months (91 days) after your last dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. But try to book an appointment around 6 months after your last dose to get the best protection from your spring booster.

Book a COVID-19 vaccination appointment online for your spring booster if you are:

  • aged 75 and over
  • aged 12 and over and have a weakened immune system

If you live in a care home for older people, contact your care home manager about getting vaccinated.

If you think you are eligible for a spring booster but did not get an invite, contact us or yourhospital specialist.
