There is still time for all those eligible for a spring coronavirus booster to come forward for the jab. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The programme, which has been underway for several months, will come to an end next week on June 30. This is to allow ample time between the spring and autumn boosters ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Those have been invited for the jab but who are yet to take up for the offer are being urged to do so before the end of the month. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The Spring Booster programme offers a second booster vaccination to those eligible following advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI). ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Those eligible for the Spring Booster programme are: ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

  • People turning 75 on or before the 30th June 2022
  • Care home residents
  • Those aged 12 and over who are immunosuppressed

Graham Rustom, COVID-19 Vaccination Programme Manager, said: “We are appealing to anyone aged over 75 who has not yet received their Spring Booster to either book an appointment or attend one of our drop-in clinics. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

“Getting the Spring Booster will offer longer lasting protection against severe COVID-19 illness to those who are more vulnerable.” ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

All vaccination invitations have been sent out to those eligible, but if you feel you have been missed, please call the Contact Centre on 03000 840004 or visit one of our drop-in clinics. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
