Boosters – Changes

The UK Government has accepted that all adults over the age of 18 should get a booster. This has not been confirmed in Scotland currently.
  • It has recommended cutting the gap between the second and third doses from six months to three months.
  • The booster programme will be rolled out by age and risk group.
  • Severely immunocompromised people should get another booster, in addition to the one they have already had.
  • Children aged 12 to 15 should now be offered a second dose of vaccine.
Please do not contact NHS staff asking when this will happen. This has only just been announced and all the details have to be worked out.
Our local NHS staff have been working under great pressure to get jags in arms … and now there is more to do.
