Covid Boosters Update December 2021

Local GP practices and NHS vaccination clinics are awaiting further clinical and operational guidance from NHS England BEFORE we can implement the changes to eligibility for booster vaccinations following recent national announcements.

Please note: Until we have the new clinical guidance in place we can only currently invite for booster vaccinations to those who had their second dose six months ago and are:

  • aged 40 years or over
  • frontline health and social care workers (including those who work in residential and nursing homes for older adults)
  • aged 16-39 years with underlying health conditions that put them at higher risk of severe COVID-19 (as set out in the green book), and adult carers or adult household contacts of immunosuppressed individuals.

We will let you know as soon as we can send invitations for boosters sooner or to younger age groups.

Please do not contact us or visit a walk in vaccination clinic if you are under 40 years old or have had your second dose within the last six months as we will not be able to invite you for a booster yet.

Please be patient and look out for local NHS updates on when these changes to eligibility will come into effect – visit or or for the latest information.
