The NHS is urging the public to get a Covid-19 booster vaccine when they are eligible to protect themselves ahead of winter.
Booster jabs are being offered to over 50s, people over 16 with a health condition that puts them at high risk of getting seriously ill from Covid-19, and health and social care workers. These groups can have their booster once six months has passed since their second dose.
Those eligible for a booster vaccination are being contacted by the NHS inviting them to book in for their jabs. If a person is eligible and has not yet received an invitation, they can book an appointment on the NHS website or walk into selected sites to receive a jab without an appointment. These include:
