Covid Vaccinations


 Seasonal (Autumn) COVID-19 booster and flu vaccine programme

You can have a seasonal booster dose (autumn booster) of the COVID-19 vaccine if you are:

  • aged 50 or over
  • pregnant
  • aged 5 to 49 and at high risk due to a health condition
  • aged 5 to 49 and at high risk because of a weakened immune system
  • aged 5 to 49 and live with someone who has a weakened immune system
  • aged 16 to 49 and a carer
  • living or working in a care home for older people
  • a frontline health and social care worker

When to get your seasonal booster

You can have your seasonal booster (autumn booster) if it's been at least 3 months since you had your previous dose.

If you have not had a 1st or 2nd dose of the COVID-19 vaccine yet, you should have them as soon as possible.

If you have a severely weakened immune system you should get an additional primary dose before you get a booster.


How to get a seasonal booster dose

The practice will shortly be offering Covid Boosters at the practice and may be given along side your flu vaccination if available

Alternatively you can:


Currently certain groups are being prioritised for booking seasonal booster appointments online. Others will be able to book later in the autumn.

What to do if you've had COVID-19 or symptoms of COVID-19

If you or your child have COVID-19, or symptoms of COVID-19 but have not had a test, you should wait until your symptoms are better before you get the vaccine.

You should ideally wait:

  • 4 weeks (28 days) if you’re aged 18 or over
  • 12 weeks (84 days) if you or your child are aged 5 to 17
  • 4 weeks (28 days) if you or your child are aged 5 to 17 and at high risk from COVID-19, or live with someone who has a weakened immune system

This starts from the date your symptoms started or from the date of a positive test, whichever was earlier.


COVID-19 booster dose and flu vaccine

Some people who can get a booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine are also eligible for the annual flu vaccine.

If you are offered both vaccines, it's safe to have them at the same time.
