How to get your COVID booster jab in the Vale of York

All over-40s in the UK are being offered a booster dose of COVID vaccine following a new recommendations from the government's advisers, the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) - and will be able to book appointments from Monday 22 November.

A booster is an extra dose of COVID vaccine, which helps prolong protection in the double-jabbed, particularly in older age groups. According to UK Health Security Agency data, having two doses, plus a booster offers a 93 per cent protection against symptomatic disease.

People aged 40-49 are now entitled to have a booster jab, from six months after having their second dose, in addition to:-

People who are pregnant and in one of the eligible groups can also get a booster dose.

National guidance states that the COVID vaccination can be administered alongside the flu vaccination. However, there will be other factors, such as vaccine delivery schedules and the characteristic of vaccination sites which will influence decisions in this area.

We would advise that, if patients are contacted to receive one or other of the vaccinations, they take up the offer and do not wait for a potential opportunity to receive both vaccinations together, to ensure protection as soon as possible.

There's further information about the booster programme in this helpful guide.

How do I book a vaccine booster?

If you are eligible, you can book your vaccine booster immediately on the NHS website or by calling 119.

You can now pre-book your booster from five months (152 days) after your second dose. You will be offered an appointment six months (182 days) after the date of your second jab.

Please book your booster as soon as you are eligible.

Alternatively, after six months, you can also go directly to an NHS walk-in centre. Please note that in the Vale of York there are currently no sites offering walk-in appointments for booster doses because of the high volume of booked appointments.
