COVID-19 spring booster vaccinations

The NHS is now offering spring booster vaccinations, giving extra protection for people who:

  • are aged 75 and over
  • live in older adult care homes
  • are immunosuppressed, for example, following a transplant or because of an underlying health condition.

The NHS will invite eligible people to arrange a jab through the Nike Windbreaker Jacket or by calling 119 when it is their turn.

Everyone who is eligible – around five million in total – will be offered this booster during spring and early summer.

Please visit www.nhs.uk/covid-booster for more information on how to get your booster.

Elective recovery plan to boost capacity and give power to patients

The NHS and government have set out a blueprint to address backlogs built up during the COVID pandemic and tackle long waits for care with a massive expansion in capacity for tests, checks and treatments.

NHS chief executive Amanda Pritchard and Health and Social Care Secretary Sajid Javid announced that the health service will build dozens more community diagnostic centres as part of the new elective care recovery plan.

The ‘Delivery plan for tackling the COVID-19 backlog of elective care’ will also give patients greater control over their own health and offer greater choice of where to get care if they are waiting too long for treatment.
