Expansion of the COVID-19 booster programme

The NHS is working at extreme pace to respond to the new variant (Omicron) and to put in place the next and most complex phase of the successful Covid-19 vaccination programme.

Following updated guidance from the JCVI, the NHS has set out how staff will expand the booster programme – this includes how booster jabs will be given in priority order so that the most vulnerable people, the over 40’s and older people, then younger people are vaccinated. The NHS is also increasing capacity to vaccinate millions more people in a shorter space of time.

The NHS will contact you when you are due to book in for your lifesaving booster vaccination, and when you get the call, it’s vital that people come forward as quickly as possible.
