In February, the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) advised a spring dose of the COVID-19 vaccine for:
- adults aged 75 years and over
- residents in care homes for older adults
- individuals aged 12 years and over who have a weakened immune system.
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 top up between three and six months over the Spring and early Summer 2022.
