    • those in long-term care facilities for older adults
    • those aged 5 years and older with immunocompromise
    • those aged between 70 years and 79 years who request one following a discussion with one of our pharmacists

    Boosters continue to be available to pregnant women or those who have yet to receive a first booster.

  • Boosters for Pregnant Women and First Boosters

    Boosters continue to be available for women who are pregnant and those waiting on their first booster.

    Pregnant women who have never had a booster can get a booster at any stage of pregnancy.  It is important to wait at least four months after your last vaccine or COVID-19 infection.

    If you have had a booster before this pregnancy then you  should wait six months after last vaccine or infection.  The booster can be given at any stage of pregnancy but is best between 20 and 34 weeks.

  • Autumn Booster 2023

    The Autumn booster programme is now ended.  A Spring booster will be announced shortly.  Boosters continue to be available to pregnant women and those who have yet to receive a first booster.

  • First Booster

    The first booster is for all clients aged 12 years and over who have only had their primary course of vaccine.  For most clients this will mean that they have only had two doses of vaccine so far.  Clients who received a Janssen vaccine will only have had one dose.  It will be at least four months since the last dose of vaccine.  Clients who are pregnant are eligible at any stage of pregnancy but need to wait at least 4 months after last COVID-19 vaccine or infection.

  • Primary Course

    We provide a primary course of vaccination to those aged 12 years and over who have never received a COVID-19 vaccine.  This requires two doses of vaccine either 4 or 8 weeks apart depending on age.
