💉💉COVID VACCINATION UPDATE💉💉
Who is being offered a spring booster?
COVID-19 is more serious in older people and those with a weakened immune system. Protection from the vaccine may be lower and may decline more quickly in these people. For this reason people aged 75 years and over, those in care homes and those aged 12 years and over with a weakened immune system are being offered the spring booster.
It would be very helpful for us if you could ensure we have your up to date mobile number as we are sending text messages containing links to book appointments. The national booking service link is https://digital.nhs.uk/coronavirus/vaccinations/national-booking-service
