COVID-19 vaccinations

The NHS will contact you when its your turn.

The coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines are safe and effective and give you the best protection against COVID-19.

Everyone aged 5 (on or before 31 August 2022) and over can get a 1st and 2nd dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Some people, including those aged 50 years or over, those at higher risk or who are pregnant, and frontline health and social care workers, will be offered a seasonal booster (autumn booster).

COVID-19 is still with us and is still making people very ill. If you have a weakened immune system due to a health condition or medical treatment, COVID-19 may affect you more seriously. Your protection from previous doses of the vaccine may now be lower and will continue to decline.

 Anyone invited to take up both their autumn booster and flu jab is strongly encouraged to do so to give you maximum protection this winter.
