No appointments needed for booster jabs
It has been announced that all those eligible will be able to receive their booster jabs at walk-in centres without needing to make an appointment, increasing their protection for the autumn and winter months ahead.
- Eight million people have received a booster jab or a third vaccine dose – but there are many more who will benefit from the protection of a third dose who have not yet come forward.
- That is why we are making booster jabs available at hundreds of sites across England and the NHS online walk-in finder will help find their nearest centres – nearly every person registered with a GP practice lives within 10 miles of a fixed vaccination site.
- Vaccines offer high levels of protection against COVID-19 but immunity reduces over time, so it's vital that vulnerable people get that booster jab as soon as they are eligible to top up their defences and extend our protection against the virus through the winter.
