COVID-19 Booster Vaccine

NHS Covid-19 booster vaccine leaflet

A booster dose of the coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine helps improve the protection you have from your first 2 doses of the vaccine.

It helps give you longer-term protection against getting seriously ill from COVID-19.

If you're eligible, you'll be offered a booster dose at least 3 months after you had your 2nd dose.

Book your vaccination appointment online

You can pre-book your booster dose online if it's been 2 months (61 days) since you had your 2nd dose and you are:

  • aged 18 or over
  • aged 16 or over with a health condition that puts you at high risk from COVID-19
  • a frontline health or social care worker

Walk-in vaccination site appointment

You can get your booster dose at a walk-in COVID-19 vaccination site if you had your 2nd dose at least 3 months ago and you are:

  • aged 18 or over
  • aged 16 or over with a health condition that puts you at high risk from COVID-19 – you’ll need to bring your letter inviting you to get your booster dose or a letter from your doctor about your health condition
  • a frontline health or social care worker – you’ll need to bring proof of your employment such as your workplace photo ID, a letter or a payslip from your employer within the last 3 months

If you do not get a letter but you have a health condition and you think you’re eligible, contact your GP surgery.
