COVID-19 vaccination update - February 2024

Please note that Autumn/Winter 2023 campaign to all eligible cohorts for a COVID-19 vaccination ended on 31 January 2024.

Who is eligible for COVID-19 vaccination after 31 January 24

Only severely immunosuppressed individuals aged six months and over may be considered for catch-up or in some cases additional vaccination before the next seasonal campaign. This will be based on a clinical judgement and aligned to the recommendation in the Green Book. 

If you need a vaccination contact or speak to: your GP practice/hospital team.

Details of the Spring Covid-19 vaccination campaign will come soon.

Flu vaccination update
The last day of Flu vaccination for all eligible cohorts for the Autumn/Winter 23 campaign will be 31 March 2024.
Please check with your GP or a community pharmacy site for when they are offering flu vaccinations.

Vaccine testing and safety

All COVID-19 vaccinations offered by the NHS have been advised for use in this campaign by experts in JCVI. All COVID-19 vaccinations have been tested in line with rigorous standards and found to give good protection against the virus. The new BA.2.86 ‘pirola’ COVID-19 variant presents a greater risk now, which is why the NHS is encouraging all eligible people to get their vaccines as soon as they can.

Important information about treatments for Covid

The way that Covid treatment is accessed has now changed.
If your medical records currently show that you have a health condition which means that treatment could reduce the chance of you becoming seriously ill from Covid, this needs to be started soon after you begin to experience symptoms. You may have previously been told that the NHS would contact you about treatment once you report a positive Covid test. This is no longer the case.
