Covid-19 vaccines

The vaccine remains our first line of defense against the virus and the best way to keep you, your family and friends safe.

We are helping the NHS deliver Covid-19 vaccinations as quickly as possible. We are strongly encouraging everyone eligible to get vaccinated as soon as they are able to.

Autumn booster

Covid-19 is still more serious in older people and those with some health conditions. Protection from the vaccine may be lower and may decline more quickly in these people.

The autumn booster will reduce the chance of you becomin seriously unwell from Covid-19 this winter. The following groups are being offered the autumn booster vaccine:

  • Residents and staff in working in care homes for older adults 
  • Frontline health and social care workers 
  • All adults aged 50 and over 
  • People aged 5 to 49 in a clinical risk group 
  • People aged 5 to 49 who live with people with immunosuppression 
  • People aged 16 to 49 who are carers. 

As with other doses of the vaccine, the autumn booster is being offered first to those most vulnerable to serious illness and hospitalisation. It is currently being offered to people aged 50 and over, people who are immunosuppressed and frontline health and care workers.

Appointments are available through the national booking system or by calling 119. 

You can also get vaccinated at a number of walk-in sites, which can be found on the NHS website.

Get up to date with your Covid-19 vaccinations

Everyone over five years old is now eligible for their first and second dose of the Covid-19 vaccine. 

Children who turned 5 on or after 1 September 2022 can only book their vaccine online if they are at high risk due to a health condition or becaue of a weakened immune system.

If you have not yet had either of your first two doses of the vaccine (or a third dose for those with a weakened immune system), you should have them as soon as possible. This is your primary Covid-19 vaccination course.

A first booster dose is also available three months after you have completed your primary Covid-19 vaccination course for anyone who is either:

  • aged 16 years and over
  • aged 12 to 15 years old with a health condition that means you're at high risk from Covid-19.

If you are eligible for the autumn booster but think you have missed a previous booster, you should still go ahead - you will not need another dose. 

You can get your vaccine through the national booking system or by calling 119.

Flu vaccine

If you're eligible for the Covid-19 autumn booster vaccine, it's likely you will also be eligible for the free flu vaccine.

In some cases both your Covid-19 and flu vaccines may be offered at the same time, however they will need to be booked separately. 

You can find more information on eligibility and how to book on the NHS website. 

 


Booster FAQ

Answer:
  • The Joint Committee of Vaccination and Immunisation recommended a ‘third primary dose’ for people who have the following conditions: blood cancers, stem cell transplants, advanced HIV/AIDS, people with recent organ transplants and people who have had to take medicine to suppress their immune system for an auto-immune condition
  • This third dose is specifically for people whose immune systems were severely weakened by a certain set of health conditions when they had their first two doses - meaning their first two doses may not have given them complete protection at the time
  • Your GP or specialist doctor will let you know whether you need a third dose – this will usually be at least three months after your second dose. However, recent JCVI advice stated that those who have not yet received their third dose may be given the third dose now to avoid further delay
Answer:
  • If you’ve tested positive for Covid-19, you need to wait four weeks (28 days) from the day of your positive test to have your booster
  • This gap will help to separate any side effects of the vaccine from effects of your illness
  • If you’ve already booked your booster appointment and then test positive, make sure to log on to the NHS website, call NHS 119, or the council helpline on 020 7364 3030 and reschedule your booking
Answer:
  • Yes, if you are housebound, you can get a Covid-19 booster at home
  • Call 020 4526 6713 from Monday to Sunday from 10am – 6pm, to arrange your vaccine
  • If you only recently became housebound, contact your GP to let them know you need a home visit
