NHS offers final chances to get boosted

Posted on February 6th, 2023

The NHS is urging those yet to get a Covid booster to book one of the thousands of appointments still available before the offer ends this week.

The NHS vaccination programme will have many appointments available throughout this week, giving everyone the opportunity to get their Covid booster if they have not done so already.

Sunday 12 February is the last day of the autumn booster campaign, and it will also be the final day that 16 to 49-year-olds who are not considered at risk will be able to get a booster following updated JCVI advice, which recommended the offer ends in line with the current campaign.

The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) is recommending a move to a more targeted offer to those considered to be at risk of serious illness – as seen with the autumn campaign – and will set out further advice on future campaigns in due course.

The JCVI has already advised that there should be another autumn vaccination campaign later this year, as well as a potential spring campaign for the most vulnerable.

The NHS Covid vaccination programme will continue to run a smaller operation after 12 February, allowing those yet to come forward for a first, second or third primary dose (if severely immunosuppressed), to book appointments.

The health service is prepared to stand up future campaigns once JCVI advice is confirmed by the Government on who will be eligible for Covid vaccines in future phases of the programme.
