    The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) has advised that a third primary dose should be offered to individuals aged 12 year and over with severe immunosuppression in proximity of their first or second COVID-19 vaccine doses in the primary schedule.

    These individuals will be identified by their Trust clinician or GP and invited in to receive a third primary dose.

    They are also likely to be offered a booster dose in due course based on further advice from JCVI.

  • Booster Programme

    Based on JCVI advice, the booster dose should only be given at least six months after an individual received their second primary dose.  Therefore you will only become eligible to receive the booster when you pass the six month mark from receipt of your second vaccination.

    • Over 40-49
    • all those aged 16 to 49 years with underlying health conditions that put them at higher risk of severe COVID-19, and adult carers
    • adult household contacts of immunosuppressed individuals
    • 4 weeks from positive COVID-19 infection

    If you’re eligible, you can book a vaccination appointment at a participating pharmacy, via HERE, wait for your GP to call you or book an appointment at our clinics below HERE

    Please remember to bring your ID.

  • Pregnant or believe to be pregnant

    In the early stages of the vaccination programme, pregnant women were asked to hold back on getting their jabs. This was a precautionary measure, which allowed more data to become available on safety.

    With that data now obtained, pregnant women are advised to get vaccinated.

    For advice about getting the COVID-19 vaccination, you can speak to your obstetric provider or midwife.

    Also, we are running special antenatal vaccination clinics.

    At these clinics we can offer 1st and 2nd doses to pregnant women and those up to six weeks postnatally.
    ▶️Remember there must be an 8 week interval between 1st and 2nd doses.
    ▶️Unfortunately this clinic is not offering booster vaccinations.
