More than 11 million people have now come forward for their life-saving COVID-19 autumn booster vaccine. While most of the population have already been vaccinated against the virus, immunity reduces over time. Everyone aged 50 and above, people with health conditions putting them at greater risk, pregnant women, care home residents, and frontline health and care workers are being offered the chance to get an autumn booster. Those eligible can book online or phone 119 as long as it has been three months since their last dose.
Approximately 33 million people are eligible for a flu vaccine. You can find information on eligibility and how to book an appointment on the nhs.uk website. You can also book an appointment through your GP practice, or by visiting one of the many thousands of participating community pharmacies. The National Booking Service is also trialing for the first time the ability for people to book their flu vaccine online at around 300 participating sites.
