Second boosters

A second booster is recommended for those at increased risk of severe illness from COVID-19 – a minimum of 6 months after a first booster. The full eligibility criteria and information about how to book will be available in the next few weeks. 

If you've recently had COVID-19

It’s recommended you wait 3 months after testing positive for COVID-19, before getting any COVID-19 vaccination. Getting a COVID-19 vaccine sooner than 3 months might reduce your immune response to the vaccine.
