or

see Walk In Options here

 

The effects of flu and COVID-19 can be more serious if you are over 50 or have an existing health condition. Stay protected this winter with the free flu vaccine and COVID-19 booster. 

COVID Autumn Booster

  • People aged 50 years and older, residents in care homes for older people, those aged 5 years and over in a clinical risk group, and health and social care staff will be offered a booster of coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine this autumn.
  • COVID-19 is still with us and people can still become very ill. Having your booster will ensure you continue to have the best protection against Coronavirus through the winter months.
  • The coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines are safe and effective. They give you the best protection against COVID-19.
  • The NHS is inviting eligible people when it’s their turn to come forward. 
  • You can book your booster on the NHS website at www.nhs.uk/book-covid-booster or by phoning 119, or you can visit a walk-in vaccination site without an appointment – see www.nhs.uk/vaccine-walk-in 
  • As with previous campaigns, the oldest and most vulnerable will be called forward first, with people able to book in online or through 119 as long as it has been three months since their last dose.
  • The NHS will continue to advise local sites to allow immunosuppressed patients to self-declare and attend walk-ins to make getting the extra protection as easy as possible.
  • Please accept the vaccination that is offered to you as soon as you are able to – it is important to have your booster and build up your protection against severe illness before the winter.
  • It’s not too late to get an earlier dose of the COVID-19 vaccine if you need one.

COVID Autumn Booster Eligibility

  • People aged 50 years and older
  • residents in care homes for older people
  • those aged 5 years and over in a clinical risk group
  • health and social care staff

When can I have my Booster

  • As with previous campaigns, the oldest and most vulnerable will be called forward first, with people able to book in online or through 119 as long as it has been three months since their last dose.
  • The NHS is inviting eligible people when it’s their turn to come forward.
  • You DO NOT need to wait if you have had your flu vaccine as you can have the COVID Booster and Flu Vaccine at same time if they are available.
  • If you’ve recently had a confirmed COVID-19 infection, you should ideally wait before getting any dose of the vaccine. You should ideally wait:
    • 4 weeks (28 days) if you’re aged 18 years old or over 
    • 12 weeks (84 days) if you’re aged 5 to 17 years
    • 4 weeks (28 days) if you’re aged 12 to 17 years old and at high-risk from COVID-1

What if I am Housebound?

The TH Care Group roving team will be visiting housebound patients to administer Flu and COVID vaccines. Patients will be contacted to arrange this.
