Vaccinations and Immunisations


If you are eligible for a  Spring booster  you can book for via this link: Alternatively you can call 119 for help with booking this vaccination

JCVI’s interim advice for planning purposes ahead of 2023 is that:

  • in autumn 2023, persons at higher risk of severe COVID-19 could be offered a booster vaccine dose in preparation for winter 2023 to 2024
  • in addition, for a smaller group of persons (such as persons of older age and those who are immunosuppressed) an extra booster vaccine dose may be offered in spring 2023
  • emergency surge vaccine responses may be required should a novel variant of concern emerge with clinically significant biological differences compared to the Omicron variant

JCVI also advises that:

  • the 2021 booster offer (third dose) for persons aged 16 to 49 years who are not in a clinical risk group should close in alignment with the close of the autumn 2022 vaccination campaign[footnote 1]
  • otherwise healthy persons aged 5 to 49 years who develop a new health condition in 2023 that places them in a clinical risk group would be offered primary vaccination and/or a booster vaccine during the next seasonal vaccination campaign, as appropriate. Vaccination outside these campaign periods would be subject to individual clinical judgement
  • primary course COVID-19 vaccination should move, over the course of 2023, towards a more targeted offer during vaccination campaigns to protect those persons at higher risk of severe COVID-19. This would include:
    • residents in a care home for older adults and staff working in care homes for older adults
    • frontline health and social care workers
    • all adults aged 50 years and over
    • persons aged 5 to 49 years in a clinical risk group, as set out in the Green Book
    • persons aged 12 to 49 years who are household contacts of people with immunosuppression
    • persons aged 16 to 49 years who are carers, as set out in the Green Book
  • research should be considered to inform the optimal timing of booster vaccinations to protect against severe COVID-19 (hospitalisations and deaths) for groups who are at different levels of clinical risk

Including all Childhood vaccines via the NHS programme, seasonal flu and travel.
