Vaccines are our best protection against flu and Covid-19. Over the last few years, they have kept tens of thousands of people out of hospital and helped to save countless lives.
For those that are older, pregnant or with certain health conditions, catching Covid-19 can increase the risk of developing more serious illnesses such as bronchitis and pneumonia or can make existing conditions worse. This is why it is important you protect yourself by getting your vaccine.
If you are eligible, you will be able to get a Covid-19 vaccination or booster in April 2024 when the spring programme starts. Come back and check here for exact dates of the spring campaign, or refer to the NHS page: www.
You can find out the latest information about both vaccines and how to book by visiting www.nhs.uk/seasonalvaccinations.
Vaccinations are free of charge and only available through the NHS. Anyone who claims to be able to provide you with a vaccine for a fee is likely to be committing a crime and should be reported to the Police online or by calling 112. The NHS will never ask you to press a button on your keypad or send a text asking you to confirm you want the vaccine.
