About the vaccine
The COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective. They give you the best protection against COVID-19.
- Everyone aged 5 and over can get a 1st and 2nd dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
- Children aged 5-17 can get a 2nd dose from 12 weeks after they had their 1st dose.
- Children who are at high risk or live with someone who has a weakened immune system, can get a 2nd dose from 8 weeks after they had their 1st dose.
- Those 18 years old or over will be offered 2nd dose appointments from 8 weeks (56 days) after your 1st dose
There are 3 types of booster doses for COVID-19.
- A booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine is available for everyone aged 16 and over, and some children aged 12 to 15, who have had a 2nd dose of the vaccine at least 3 months ago.
- A booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine is available for anyone who had a severely weakened immune system when they had their first 2 doses and who had an additional primary dose (3rd dose) of the vaccine at least 3 months ago.
- A spring booster of the COVID-19 vaccine is available to people aged 75 and over, people who live in a care home for older people, or people aged 12 and over who have a weakened immune system.
