COVID-19 Booster Vaccine

The Autumn COVID-19 Booster Vaccine Campaign is Now Underway

People who are more vulnerable to the virus are being invited to top up their protection ahead of winter six months or more after receiving their second jab.

Those in line for a booster jab include everyone aged 50 and over, frontline health and social care workers and those aged between 16 and 49 with an underlying health condition putting them at greater risk from the virus.

People will be offered either a full dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine or a half dose of the Moderna vaccine, following scientific evidence showing that both provide a strong booster response. This will be regardless of which vaccine the individual previously had.

Vaccinations are being offered in hospital hubs, vaccination centres, local vaccination services and pharmacy led services. For our patients the closest sites include Ticehurst Pharmacy and Saxonbury House Medical Centre, however other sites are available on the booking website.
