COVID-19 Booster Vaccine

The NHS is offering a booster vaccine dose to people most at risk from COVID-19 who have already had two doses of the vaccine.

The protection given by the COVID-19 vaccine decreases over time. A booster dose helps to give you longer term protection against getting seriously ill from COVID-19.

The NHS will let you know when its you're turn to have a booster dose. It is important not to contact the NHS for one before then.
