This also builds on the previous announcement that those aged 16 to 17 can also receive a second COVID-19 dose, no sooner than 12 weeks after the first dose.
These will help protect yourself, and those around you, from respiratory viruses this Winter. Please visit www.nhs.uk/WinterVaccinations to find out more and book your vaccinations if eligible.
If you haven't yet received a Flu Vaccination this year, please ask our pharmacy teams, or for more information, please visit www.wellwaycentral.co.uk/flu. We're even offering walk-in Flu Vaccinations for all those aged 65+ — please visit www.wellwaycentral.co.uk/news/grab-a-flu-jab for more information.
We are working closely with NHS England, Regional and National systems to co-ordinate the response to this recent announcement, and increase capacity in order to deliver these life-saving vaccines.
We are not currently offering COVID-19 Booster doses to anyone in this new cohort. Understandably there will be a big backlog to work through, and we will be prioritising those with most clinical need. We are working with NHS England to co-ordinate the rollout — please await further information in due course on how to book your vaccination.
