COVID-19 Booster jab

A booster dose of the coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine helps improve the protection you have from your first 2 doses of the vaccine.

It helps give you longer-term protection against getting seriously ill from COVID-19.

Who can get a COVID-19 booster dose

You can get a booster dose if you had a 2nd dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at least 3 months ago and:

  • you are aged 18 or over
  • you are aged 16 or over with a health condition that puts you at high risk of getting seriously ill from COVID-19
  • you are a frontline health or social care worker
  • you live or work in a care home
  • you are aged 16 or over and are a main carer for someone at high risk from COVID-19
  • you are aged 16 or over and live with someone who has a weakened immune system (such as someone who has HIV, has had a transplant or is having certain treatments for cancer, lupus or rheumatoid arthritis)
How and when to get your COVID-19 booster dose

If you’re eligible, you’ll be offered a booster dose at least 3 months after you had your 2nd dose.

Most people can:

  • book a vaccination appointment online for an appointment at a vaccination centre or pharmacy
  • go to a walk-in vaccination site to get vaccinated
  • wait to be contacted by a local NHS service
  • contact GP surgery and book an appointment with them

You can use this service if you:

  • are aged 18 years old or over
  • have an NHS number
  • have received one of these MHRA-approved vaccines outside of England – Oxford/AstraZeneca (Vaxzevria), Pfizer/BioNTech (Comirnaty), Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) or Moderna (Spikevax)

 

Face Coverings

You must wear a face covering by law in some public places this means you must wear a face mask to all GP and nurse appointments unless you have a face covering exemption because of your age, health or another condition. Patients are expected to sanitize their hands upon arrival to the practice.

You are also strongly encouraged to wear a face covering in other enclosed public spaces where social distancing may be difficult and where you come into contact with people you do not normally meet. Social distancing, hand washing and covering coughs and sneezes, remain the most important measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Face coverings do not replace these.

Lateral flow test kits

Lateral flow testing kits

Rapid tests help to check if someone has COVID-19. If people test positive and self- isolate, it helps stop the virus spreading.

How to get rapid tests?

You are able to pick up tests from a pharmacy, this is the quickest way to get a rapid test for most people. If you give the pharmacy a ‘collect code’ when you pick up the tests, it helps the NHS match your details to the tests.

Efforts are ongoing to ensure there are sufficient supplies available through these routes.

Pharmacy and Community Collect options can be utilised (Find where to get rapid lateral flow tests – NHS (test-and-trace.nhs.uk))

You may also order home kits online if you cannot get a test through other methods.
