Booster vaccinations

The NHS will let you know when it's your turn to have a booster dose. It's important not to contact the NHS for one before then. Please wait to be contacted via letter, text or email before trying to book. Once you have received your invitation, you can book using the National Booking Service.

Booster vaccine doses will be available on the NHS for people most at risk from COVID-19 who have already had 2 doses of a vaccine.

This includes:

  • people aged 50 and over
  • people who live and work in care homes
  • frontline health and social care workers
  • people aged 16 and over with a health condition that puts them at high risk of getting seriously ill from COVID-19
  • carers aged 16 and over
  • people aged 16 and over who live with someone who is more likely to get infections (such as someone who has HIV, has had a transplant or is having certain treatments for cancer, lupus or rheumatoid arthritis)

People who are pregnant and in 1 of the eligible groups can also get a booster dose.

You'll be offered a booster dose at least 26 weeks/6 months after you had your 2nd dose.


Identifying unpaid carers

Unpaid carers are eligible for COVID-19 booster vaccinations. Those currently in receipt of a carer’s allowance or identified in March 2021 as receiving support from a Local Authority or Carers Organisation, are being called nationally for booster vaccinations providing it’s been six months since they completed their primary course. To create a sustainable process for calling unpaid carers for any future COVID-19 vaccinations, a letter from NHS Call and Recall will be sent to nationally identified unpaid carers instructing them to show it to their GP practice and request they’re recorded as a carer on their record. Practices may ask some routine questions before making any changes to a person's GP record. Please refer to NICE guidance for identifying new unpaid carers.


Information leaflets, including other languages

Public Health England has published various information leaflets about COVID-19 vaccination in various languages. Click on the links below to see all languages:



Please note, the NHS will NOT ask for payment or bank details to book any vaccine or testing appointments, or to prove your identity.

Cybercriminals are using the roll out of the NHS COVID-19 vaccine to target victims with convincing looking text messages. The text appears to be from the NHS and state that the recepient is elegible to receive the vaccine. Recipients are then encouraged to click on a hyperlink to an application form. The link takes you to an extremely convincing fake NHS website which asks for personal and financial details. Remember, the NHS will NEVER ask for your payment details.



The main symptoms of coronavirus are: a high temperature, a new, continuous cough and a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste. Most people with coronavirus have at least one of these symptoms. If you have Covid-19 symptoms, get a PCR test as soon as possible. You can book a PCR test online on the website or by ringing 119. We do not offer drop-in COVID-19 testing.

If you don't have Covid-19 symptoms, you should do a rapid test twice a week (every 3 to 4 days), to check if you have the virus. If people test positive and self-isolate, it helps stop the virus spreading. You can do these tests at home for free. You can order a pack of seven tests to be mailed to your home, or pick it up from a pharmacy or a test site. More information on how to get Lateral Flow Tests in the NHS website. If your rapid test comes out positive, you'll need to book a PCR test online, or by phoning 119.
