Spring booster jabs for the over 75s and immunosuppressed now available

You will usually be offered an appointment around 6 months after your last dose of COVID-19 vaccine. Appointments on national booking service

From today, the NHS Covid vaccination programme will start inviting eligible people to come forward for their life-saving Spring booster jabs.

You will be offered a spring booster if you:

  • are aged 75 and over
  • live in a care home for older people
  • are aged 12 and over and have a weakened immune system

COVID-19 may affect you more seriously if you are in one of these groups. The spring booster is being offered to help reduce your risk of getting seriously ill from COVID-19.

You will be contacted by the NHS when you are due a spring booster. You will usually be offered an appointment around 6 months after your last dose of COVID-19 vaccine.

Oxford Health’s three large scale vaccination centres at the Kassam Stadium, Oxford as well at the Guttmann Centre in Aylesbury and the Broad Street Mall in Reading will be offering the Spring booster.

Eligible people can arrange it through the National Booking Service or by calling 119 when it is their turn.

Calls to 119 are free from mobiles and landlines. Lines are open every day from 8am to 8pm, and 119 can provide support in 200 languages.
