COVID-19 Spring Booster Programme

Posted by: ethan - Posted on:

The NHS is now offering Spring Boosters to people aged 75 and over, residents in care homes for older people and people with weakened immune systems. This follows the recommendation from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) that an extra dose should be offered to these groups to make sure those at greatest risk continue to have high levels of protection against COVID-19.

If you are eligible for an extra booster, you will be contacted by the NHS when it is your turn with details of how to make an appointment. This maybe by text, letter, or a call from the practice.

People are being prioritised according to when they had their previous booster and by clinical need so please wait to hear from the NHS. You do not need contact the practice or other NHS services. Everyone who is eligible will be contacted between 21 March and early Summer, depending on when they had their last booster.

If you haven’t had your previous booster, you can visit www.nhs.uk/covid-booster or call 119 to book an appointment or find a local walk-in clinic at www.calderdaleccg.nhs.uk/grabajab
