The NHS in Calderdale is starting to offer Spring booster vaccines this week as the Covid-19 vaccination programme moves to the next phase. The extra booster is being offered to people aged 75 and over, care home residents and people with weakened immune systems (12 and over), in line with the latest advice from the Joint Committee on Immunisations & Vaccinations (JCVI).
Eligible people will be contacted by the NHS when it is their turn to be vaccinated, around six months on from their initial booster. Once invited, people will be able to book their appointment through the National Booking System, online or by calling 119, or at a GP vaccination service if they have been contacted by their practice. GP teams will also be carrying out booster clinics in local care homes over the coming weeks, as well as providing vaccinations for any eligible housebound patients.
