Covid Booster

In News, Uncategorised by John Geddes

NHS England are preparing for a Spring 2023 COVID 19 Booster programme, for the same groups that were eligible in Spring 2022:

  • adults aged 75 years and over
  • residents in a care home for older adults
  • individuals aged 5 years and over who are immunosuppressed, as defined in the Green Book (tables 3 and 4).

The current intention is that bookings will open around April 5th, with the aim of completing delivery by the end of June.

The government has accepted interim JCVI advice which also states the NHS should plan for an extra booster vaccine dose in the autumn.
