Booster vaccinations

The booster vaccine is a top up of the first two doses. Every one aged 16 and over are now eligible to book their booster dose. You need to wait three months after your 2nd dose to have your booster but you can pre-book from two months. You can book your booster on the National Booking Service, by calling 119, or attend a walk-in clinic

You will be offered Pfizer or Moderna for your booster or third dose, even if you didn’t have these for your first and second dose. Trials have shown that these two vaccines give the best immune response when used as booster or third doses.

If you are unable to have Pfizer or Moderna for medical reasons, AstraZeneca may be given as an alternative. Your GP or pharmacist will discuss this with you.

Please don’t contact your GP with enquiries about booster vaccinations.

3rd dose vaccinations 

People with a weakened immune system are being offered a 3rd dose of a Covid-19 vaccine. This is also known as a third primary dose. Third primary doses are not booster vaccinations. If you had a weakened immune system when you had your first two doses, the vaccine may not have given you as much protection as it can for people who do not have a weakened immune system. The third dose is being offered to a specific group of people who are immunocompromised.

The NHS and GPs will contact those who are eligible for the third dose. If you think you should have a third dose but haven’t been contacted yet get in touch with your hospital consultant or GP.

People who have had a 3rd dose will be offered a booster six months after their third. It’s important to have all vaccinations offered.
