COVID-19 vaccination for Spring 2024

The national booking sysem (NBS) will be open from Monday 15 April 2024 for eligible patients to book their COVID-19 vaccination between 22 April - 30 June 2024.

Who is eligible for COVID-19 vaccination
  • adults aged 75 years and over
  • residents in care homes for older adults
  • individuals aged 6 months and over who are immunosuppressed (as defined in the Green Book, chapter 14a; tables 3 and 4)
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-19 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.
