Immunosuppressed patients third Covid vaccination
This group of patients are being offered a third Covid vaccination instead of a Covid booster jab.
Covid Vaccine Boosters
NHS Berkshire West Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has started to deliver the Covid vaccine boosters. This is to help top up the protection for those most at risk as we approach winter. In line with the recommendations of the JCVI, these will be offered to the following people who are at greatest risk:
- those living in residential care homes for older adults
- frontline health and social care workers
- all adults aged 50 years or over
- all those aged 16 to 49 years with underlying health conditions that put them at higher risk of severe COVID-19 and adult carers
- adult household contacts of immunosuppressed individuals
If you are eligible for a booster, you will be contacted by the NHS when it is your turn, either by your GP practice or the NHS National Booking Service. There must be a six month gap between your second Covid vaccine and the booster jab which means some people will not be contacted until the New Year.
Please help us ease pressure on our healthcare services by not contacting your surgery asking about availability. You will hear from your GP or the National Booking Service when it’s time to book your appointment. More information is below. A leaflet is also available on the Gov.uk website.
Ways to get your Covid-19 vaccination
You can book a first and second dose of the vaccine at a local vaccination site across Berkshire West.
Go online to the national booking service or call 119 to make an appointment. Appointments are being continuously updated to allow plenty of local choice and times, so please check regularly.
