Coronavirus (COVID-19) booster vaccine

A COVID-19 booster vaccine dose 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. Booster vaccine doses are available for people most at risk from COVID-19 who have had a 2nd dose of a vaccine at least 6 months ago.

This includes:

  • people aged 50 and over
  • people who live and work in care homes
  • frontline health and social care workers
  • people aged 16 and over with a health condition that puts them at high risk of getting seriously ill from COVID-19
  • carers aged 16 and over
  • people aged 16 and over who live with someone who is more likely to get infections (such as someone who has HIV, has had a transplant or is having certain treatments for cancer, lupus or rheumatoid arthritis)
  • women who are pregnant and in 1 of the eligible groups can also get a booster dose.

The NHS will let you know when it's your turn to have a booster dose. It's important not to contact the NHS for one before then.

Frontline health or social care workers can book a booster dose appointment online (external link). You do not need to wait to be contacted by the NHS.

If you are not a frontline health or social care worker, please wait to be contacted by the NHS before booking your booster dose.

The NHS North Central London Clinical Commissioning Group has a list of frequently asked questions about the vaccine (external link).

If you don't have an NHS number

The COVID-19 vaccine is free to everyone in the UK. This includes all migrants. Your asylum or immigration status does not affect this. The NHS will not share your information with the Home Office, Police or other authorities.

If you do not have an NHS number, see the COVID-19: vaccine information for people without an NHS number - GOV.UK (external link) You will find information and a letter available in many community languages that you may find helpful if you want to get vaccinated against COVID-19.
