COVID-19 Spring Vaccination Programme

In February, the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) advised a spring dose of the COVID-19 vaccine as a precaution to those at extremely high risk, most of whom received their first booster around 6 months ago.

Who will be offered the spring booster?

The NHS will contact those who are eligible to make a spring booster appointment, so people should wait until they hear from the NHS.

The NHS will prioritise those whose clinical need is greatest, as it has throughout, starting with those who have had a bigger gap since their last dose, then working through the cohort to invite others who have waited less time.

Everyone who is eligible will be offered a booster between three and six months over the Spring and early Summer.
