COViD Booster Jabs
In February, the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) advised a spring dose of the COVID-19 vaccine for:
Boosters can be booked on the National Booking System online or by calling 119, with mass vaccine sites in Torquay, Exeter and Plymouth as well as pharmacy sites active across South Devon.
The NHS will contact those who are eligible to make a spring booster appointment, so people should wait until they hear from the NHS. The NHS will prioritise those whose clinical need is greatest, as it has throughout, starting with those who have had a bigger gap since their last dose, then working through the cohort to invite others who have waited less time. Everyone who is eligible will be offered a top up between three and six months over the Spring and early Summer.
The JCVI advice is that people should wait until around six months since their last dose for maximum effectiveness, and people are asked to wait until they are invited by the NHS to book. However, provided they are in one of the eligible groups and they attend a site that accepts walk-ins for booster doses, they should not be turned away if it has been more than three months since their previous dose and they have not had COVID recently.
You spend very little time with your clinicians and the rest of the time you are managing on your own.
