1. Information regarding booster jabs for cohorts 1-9

The COVID vaccination programme, the biggest and most successful in health service history, is now  taking online and phone bookings from people invited for a booster jab.

People who are more vulnerable to the virus are being invited to top up their protection ahead of winter, six months or more after receiving their second jab.

They do not need to contact the NHS but will be invited when it is their turn. Texts and letters are going out to around 1.5 million people this week.

Those in line for a booster jab include everyone aged 50+, frontline health and social care workers and those aged between 16 and 49 with an underlying health condition putting them at greater risk from the virus.

People will be able to book an appointment online at www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination at one of the convenient vaccine sites across the country. People that aren’t able go online can book by phoning 119.
