Following updated guidance from the JCVI, the NHS will shortly set out how staff will expand the booster programme – this includes how booster jabs will be given in priority order so that the most vulnerable people are protected first, while also increasing capacity to vaccinate more people in a shorter space of time.
The JCVI announced those aged 18 to 39 will also be eligible for a booster when the NHS calls them forward.
As you can appreciate, information is emerging and we will continue to work in line with NHS guidelines. NHS guidelines are currently being confirmed and we will invite you for your vaccination when you are eligible.
The booster will be offered in order of descending age groups, with priority given to the vaccination of older adults and those in a COVID-19 at-risk group.
We are receiving high numbers of calls regarding the latest announcement. Please be assured we will invite you for your vaccination when you are eligible. Please do not contact the practice.
